Lisbon, Portugal -
A woman passing by in Alto de Sao Joao cemetery center Lisbon. The age pyramid is inverting dramatically in Portugal as old people live longer and births rates decreased over the last years. This photo is part of an one week reportage on Portuguese Daily Life, between Dec 17 and Dec 21, 2012, on the year that the austerity measures set by the Portuguese Government to achieve the goals set by the Troika (IMF, ECB, EC) for the Portuguese Bailout Package, result in the highest unemployment rates ever since the beginning of Portuguese Democracy (1974) and poverty starts to show on the former middle class families.
