In honour of the birthday of 463 years of São Paulo, on 25 January, the Brazilian photographer Flavio Meyer presents aerial images of important historical sites, tourist and cultural metropolis at the Art Gallery Circolo Italiano.
Through effects of optical illusion, the artist invites us to discover a new look, where the imposing city, becomes a little girl and the observer, a giant. The images instigate our imagination to fantasise about a toy town, subverting the magnificence of the town in front of the man.
