Abandoned city – Cidade deserta

Does urban life in Brazil really stop during world cup soccer matches? Fábio Miyata tries to answer this question by taking photos of main avenues of São Paulo during the matches of the Brazilian soccer team. Some of the usual transit bottlenecks, such as Radial Leste, Avenida Santo Amaro and Avenida Paulista, indeed remain deserted. Marginal Pinheiros still seems to have the normal flow of vehicles during the match against North Korea. And of course the Anhangabaú valley is completely crowded with pedestrians, because of the large public plasma screens that show the match.
