22 Sep Flaneur #7
Treze de Maio - Sao Paulo
From the detailed reality of one street to crafting a story that resonates universally, is what Flaneur is all about. One street, one issue, story after story. This time, its the street of Treze de Maio in São Paulo named after the day slavery was abolished in Brazil back in 1888. Double-sized and decidedly the most satisfying to date, issue number 7 passes a series of accounts excavated from the daytoday lives of the streets residents, passers-by and shop owners in poetical texts, photographs, collages and drawings. Layer upon layer, Flaneur patiently tells us about the streets concerns, fears, joys, and the activities of its artists along those of its butchers and aged grandmothers.
