Fissura is a field diary in one of the most feared regions of the country, in which photographer Gui Christ dedicated more than two years of work tracing the relationship between the deterioration of what was once the most upscale neighborhood of São Paulo with the reasons that lead daily thousands of people on the streets of the region in search of drugs.

Christ shows that the origins of the cracks found in the walls of the old mansions transformed into crack hotels and the open wounds in the skins of the drug users who live there, have the same origin, the social fissure created by an economic system that excludes and penalizes everything that does not interest it.
