Exposition comparing Buenos Aires to São Paulo at the Museo Lasar Segall

It is famous the historic rivalry between Brazil and Argentina. Nowadays the situation is actually changing thanks to the easy way of traveling that makes it easier to get to know each other. The exposition we are suggesting today is about the similarities between Buenos Aires and São Paulo, it is called Profissão Fotógrafo (Occupation Photographer) and its focus is to show what the two cities have in common basing on the eyes of Hildegard Rosenthal (1913-1990), Swiss who lived in São Paulo, and the Argentinian Horacio Coppola.
The pictures enlighten a comparison between São Paulo and Buenos Aires during the 30ies and the 40ies of the last century, the similarities between them are noteworthy. Both cities were born as huge cities, open to industrial progress, with the modernist architecture and the bustle of the crowds. The great success of the exhibition was to combine the key qualities of the two photographers and of the two cities.
