Lalo de Almeida/Folhapress/Panos

Altamira, Para, Brazil

A party for the workers of Belo Monte dam on the river bank in Altamira. On the last weekend of the month, when the workers receive their salary, Altamira became a chaotic mess. With thousands of drunk men seeking to court the few available women, it took very little to start a knife fight. At the peak of the construction for the plant at the end of 2014/beginning of 2015, the sites housed more than 25,000 construction workers, 87% of them were men.
