LOCATED IN THE SOUTHEAST OF BRAZIL, São Paulo is South America’s largest metropolitan area, home to 20 million people. Though flawed and made almost entirely of concrete, the city holds a certain type of unique charm. My São Paulo is a city for the busy and for the working. It’s big. It’s chaotic. But it’s still photogenic.
