    SÃO PAULO – GREEN CITY
    This is a small contribution for the December 2013 issue of the
    Brazilian magazine AU (Architecture and Urbanism).
    The briefing was to make something that was related to architecture
    or urbanism in a witty/critical way, so I decided to show a side of 
    the megalopolis I'm living in now: São Paulo. With almost 20 million
    people, São Paulo has neglected some important issues in its design,
    such as green areas well distributed along the city.
    This photographic project ironically shows some green areas of
    São Paulo through its relation to miniatures dolls. It also shows the
    message that even though nature's been neglected, it always finds
    its way in the middle of the concrete jungle.
    The title makes an ironic appropriation of a city's law called
    "São Paulo – Clean City".
