São Paulo City Project: Motion and Emotion

Part of an ongoing global WPO workshop series, this installation of the City Project in São Paulo was designed to assist people in developing their documentary aesthetic and improving their reportage photography.

Workshop leader, Jez Coulson, designed this particular project to capture the speed of life with its movement and kinetic energy, combining this with the expressive characters and expressed emotion that make the population so alive and vibrant ..... The 'Motion and Emotion'...... The dynamism and the heart of the city.

This City Project, oranised by WPO, was hosted by Sony Brazil as part of their unique Sony Educa programme, which provides photographic education to young audiences through live and online initiatives.
