My London, My São Paulo
Tue 1 December 2015, 18:30 – 20:30 GMT
Café Art is hosting the My London and My São Paulo Exhibition, plus a selection of paintings from Café Art artists.
It will be the world premiere of the Sao Paulo, Brazil photographs. Sponsored by Streetwise Opera's With One Voice and the Peoples Palace Projects, the photos were taken in early November.
The London contest was held in July, with 100 disposable cameras handed out to London people affected by homelessness. The top 20 photos were voted on by the public in August and the fundraising 2016 My London calendar was launched in October.
Café Art ran a pilot photography contest in São Paulo in early November, working with homeless shelters in the city. One hundred cameras were handed out in two São Paulo shelters. Like London, the São Paulo participants had several days to take images of their city. The winning shots were selected with the help of a member of The Royal Photographic Society in São Paulo.
The exhibition will also show the My São Paulo calendar, currently being designed in London by Carter Wong Design, the same designers as the My London calendar. The calendar will be printed in Brazil and sold during the São Paulo Human Rights Festival in December.
A selection of paintings from Café Art London artists will also be in the exhibition.
The first drink is free and snacks are also provided.
