A man crossing the street
I was making a study for a opera-movie that would be filmed on this avenue. The film was about the avenue itself - culturally and financially, the most traditional spot in São Paulo city. The intentions were to capture the essence of the place trough multiple approaches, differing from the common sense of an always-crowd business and social center. On this particular image I tried to picture two levels of contrast: the sense of silence and loneliness in the most powerful city`s place and the graphic tension between the colors and directions on the frame.
