Running at Elevado Costa e Silva, by Marcus Laranjeira

 

This photo was taken on an avenue in downtown São Paulo-SP, Brazil, which is elevated from street level, about as high as the second floor of a building. Residential buildings around this avenue, when it was built, lost value and people who lived in them lost their privacy. So the whole area has worsened. Indigents, drug addicts, criminals and people on the margins of society began to frequent the area. To take pictures with security in this region, a group of photographers, amateur and professional, under the supervision of a journalist, organized a photographic output for this purpose. The tour lasted about two hours and yielded excellent images.

    São Paulo… olhos de artista para pintá-la; alma de poeta para entendê-la…

    São as sombras às sombras desta cidade, como uma esfinge a gritar: decifra-me ou te devoro!

    Parabéns!

    This picture has movement, it is sensitive. The framework has a great view of the depth of the high and the slums of concrete in buildings that became the region.
    Nice work, congratulations

    I guess this shoot captures an interesting point of view from this location in São Paulo: The ghosts. When the cars – true innhabitants of this crazy city – are forbidden to use the Elevado, some ghosts of an ancient and rarely-seen specie can be caught doing an old habbit: Sports.
