In the images of São the built and the humane fill the frame completely. There’s no breathing room, no sky. São Paulo can create that feeling in its visitors, with high buildings, near each other, practically conjoined. The masses of people who walk fast trough the central streets can also drag you, leaving immersed in a sea of people. São seeks for order in this chaos, looking for patterns in the disorder and uniting images that give the tone of the life in downtown São Paulo. São is a series from the streets, from observation, that seeks to externalise the life of people immersed in the heart of one of the most populated cities in the world.
