São Paulo Ambiguous, an exhibition of color photographs of the city of São Paulo by renowned Brazilian photographer Claudio Edinger. The 12 photographs in the exhibition are part of a series of over 30 images depicting Edinger's hometown, a complex city of contrasts and contradictions.

Claudio Edinger was born in Rio de Janeiro in 1952 but raised in São Paulo. He began taking photographs in the early Seventies, while studying economics at Mackenzie University in São Paulo. In 1975 he had his first solo exhibition, at the São Paulo Museum of Art (MASP), with photographs of the Martinelli Building, a vertical slum in downtown São Paulo.

The following year he moved to New York City, where he lived until 1996. Over the course of 20 years spent in the United States, Edinger developed numerous personal photographic essays. In 1977, he studied under legendary photographer Philippe Halsman (1906-1979). For more information click here.
