Photographer's Note

Known as "serious", "workaholic", paulistanos (people who were born in São Paulo, like me ;)) are very proud of Ibirapuera Park and every friend who arrive in the city is invited to visit it. As you can see in the link, there are many images of that fantastic place here, but there is still a lot to be shown, and visiting the pavillions are mandatory.

Following my last post, let me show you the Pavillion where the Art Biennial takes place, that is, The Cicillo Matarazzo Pavillion.

The first Art Biennial took place in 1951 at Trianon Park. Up to 2003 there have been 25 biennials with the participation of 148 countries, 10,660 artists and around 56,932 artworks. Nowadays we have the 28th Art Biennial of São Paulo.

The idea for the creating of the Park came from Francisco Matarazzo Sobrinho, the "Ciccillo", member of a prominent family by the 50´s, when the city was boiling with ideas of modernity. The architect Oscar Niemeyer was granted the project, which consisted of eight pavillions, three lakes, streets and gardens, the latter idealized by Roberto Burle Marx.

This place is just a paradise for photographers, and when it is almost empty, as it was last Friday... well, better stop writing and show ;)

Please, take a look at WS 1 and
WS 2.

Thanks for passing by :) Have a great week!
