In this work I seek to document the organization of the sand space on the beaches of Rio de Janeiro. It's a place that increases and decreases, depending on the strength of the tides and that every day is written and interpreted by the "barraqueiros".

They work from dawn to dusk: they rent chairs and umbrellas, install showers, define their commercial areas. The hotter it is, the busier the beach is and the more work they have..

In addition to the activity of these “barraqueiros” and the representation of their place of work, I also want to show how beachgoers take charge of the place and create their own universe. I try to understand how every day an established scenario is written on Rio's beaches, from the sidewalk to the sea, through the canvases of the tents and the different game architectures that punctuate this place of life and pleasure.
