Sao Paulo Photo Festival

Today is the official start day of the first ever São Paulo Photo Festival. (Unfortunately right now the site is only available in Portuguese). For a first festival, they have quite a line up of guests, lectures and workshops.  Invited international guests include  Amy Arbus, Antonin Kratochvil and Scout Tufankjian.

I’m honored to have been invited by one of the festival organizers, Jay Colton, to be the New York corespondent for the festival where I have been contributing to the official blog, writing about all the photo happenings in New York.

This is a huge step for São Paulo and Brazil in trying to get a foot on the world  photography map. I applaud their efforts and look forward to watching the festival grow.

In honor of this, I leave you with on old self portrait of mine shot from a roof top in the Pacaembu neighborhood of São Paulo.
