Description of book: CENTRO is a personal exploration of São Paulo’s downtown district. Both the images and the objects photographed are a direct result of transformation. The city is seen empty and like an archeologist Felipe searches for what was left behind. Objects and man made construction are the material where the photographer looks for order and evidence. The city becomes a space of silence where matter seems to have its own vitality and the smallest mark gains meaning and significance. It is seen as an accumulation of constructed objects that gain value for what they are for their physicality and for what they become when photographed.

The best thing about self-publishing: Being involved in the hole process of making the book.
