Paulista Avenue in B&W by Adriano Mor

B&W of low exposure, dense shadows, well-defined shapes, and contrast was modeled for my city, not me. The gray of the concrete, the lifeless modernist architecture without human ornaments transforming São Paulo and the world into an immense monolith can only be expressed with dramatic images. Like this photograph taken at Paulista Avenue, where the human factor is reduced, and even the sun’s heat finds it difficult to describe his nature.

Born in Birigüi, a small town in the State of São Paulo, he has lived in the capital of São Paulo for ten years, where his interest is to portray the authentic essence – unspoken – of Brazil’s culture, expression, and customs.
