Aperture #215, The São Paulo Issue is available online here: bit.ly/1uME3ok
On June 3, 2014, in conjunction with the release of The São Paulo Issue, Aperture magazine presented a night of presentations and conversations about contemporary photography from Brazil. Featured speakers included three leading Brazilian photographers: Caio Reisewitz, whose work is currently the subject of a solo exhibition at the International Center of Photography; Bárbara Wagner; and Mauro Restiffe. All three use photography to engage questions of Brazilian history, architecture, urban space, and the politics of the landscape. The three photographers’ presentations were followed by a panel discussion led by issue guest editor Thyago Nogueira, curator of contemporary photography at São Paulo’s Instituto Moreira Salles and editor of Zum, a key Brazilian photography magazine.
