Avenida Paulista

2010-09-09 2

Get to know São Paulo’s most interesting and popular avenue! As many of you know, Av. Paulista is the place you have to go to when in São Paulo, be it for work or leisure.

First, because its location is more than interesting: between the neighborhood of Jardins, well known for the finesse of its stores and public, who don’t actually walk but glide through the alleys, and the Centre of the capital, with its antique bulidings, beggars and the peculiar women of Rua Augusta and its surroundings.

But keeping our avenue in focus. Av. Paulista is well known for being a versatile and frenetic place. There you will find everything from a simple bar with cocktails and appetizers costing less than R$ 1,00 to international restaurants attended by stylish people who have no shame to trifle away what they have (and many times what they don’t have).. After the dessert and caffeine, you have the chance to go to a comedy at a theatre or a cult or Trash movie sessions at a cinema, you are in control. Want culture? Go to MASP, here’s a tip: tuesday’s entrance are free of charge.

While talking about you, let’s talk about other as well. Let us not be egocentric. Block by block you’ll get to see a bit of everything, turists with cameras at their necks with a “where’s the jungle” look on their faces, Emo teenagers smack in the middle of skaters, rockers, surfers, hippies, modelettes, etc. I believe that the great mixture of behaviors, styles and realities in so little space is what makes this avenue such an interesting place so full of life.

    A Color Remix

    It's human nature to be restless and imaginative. The real may be interpreted as what one sees or how one sees something. For the daydreamer, a scene from nature transforms into a canvas. Suddenly a field makes room for chemical coloring, all those anachronistic streaks that somehow look right. Or else, those beautiful colors amplified or subdued to their most pictorial shades. All in the world of trial-and-process film photography.

    A Hunt for Curios and Wonderful Patterns

    Some photographers have an instinct for the unique. Whereas others aim to fashion the ordinary into a singular picture, these hunters are obsessed with what cannot be found elsewhere. They prize an exclusive scoop on architectural patterns, artisan quirks, and objects that stick out of an everyday scene. And when the photographers find them, they will twist and turn to get the most flattering angle. Only right for curiosities that beg to be shared.

    How to Develop Photos on Stone in a Darkroom

    I have always loved the idea of seeing my photos on stone and other natural materials. So, a few months ago, I began googling how it could be done. This is how I discovered (and fell in love with) liquid emulsion. Liquid emulsion is photographic emulsion which you can melt down and paint on any surface. You can then expose an image and develop it using traditional darkroom chemicals. In this article, I would like to explain the process a little, so that if you are also interested in giving this fun process a go, you can!
