Irenio wanted to be sure to document beauty in his life - he did not want the world to think that his life reflected only poverty or sadness.
He especially wanted to capture the kids, who like him, perform Capoeria [Brazilian martial art form] on the green grass at the nearby golf course.
Irenio and Saquina's family live in two of their home's three rooms. For extra money, they rent their third room for $10 per month.
They do not have running water or electricity.
