Back in 2006, São Paulo city’s mayor Gilberto Kassab pushed a bill to ban the excesses of advertising, which from his point-of-view had become merely visual pollution. Since then, all form of visual signage was forbidden and after so many years here’s what the city was left with.
More recently, Tony de Marco, a Brazilian artist and photographer have taken some amazing photos of the city, and the amount of empty buildings walls and empty signs may suggest some sort of ghost town. Surprisingly, São Paulo is one of the largest cities in the world and the economic capital of Brazil. Via @tonydemarco.
