Presentation on the website L'Oeil de la Photographie :

"Sharkification is about the « favelas » and the Brazilian government's strategy to attempt to control them during the soccer World Cup by involving armed units. It created a militarisation of the communities, where suddenly everybody becomes a suspect.

The shark metaphor aims to explain the dynamics into place. « I used the comparison with a submarine world to imagine that the favelas are a coral reef where there are predators… » When most of the photojournalists keep trying to play with feelings, Cristina de Middel uses humour, which seems to be a more intelligent way to look at things and that helps people becoming more curious."

The "main" cover for this book is "hardcover", with the images by Cristina de Middel inside. The texts and additional illustrations are in two separate "booklet-type" parts inserted in the main binding and placed outside of the hardcovers, on either side of the book.
