Miljoner (Millions)

January 2007 would one of the biggest prize in the brazilian lottery be draw.
52.807.317,17 brazilian reais (18.933.007,12 euros) for one prize winner.
I was in Brazil for the first time after moving to Sweden and decided to photograph the queues at the lotto stores in Belo Horizonte's downtown during the last hours before closing, in a kind of portrait of the brazilian working class, feeding the dream of a social ascension.
