Living windows

March 30, 2011 § 6 Comments

On 911 Prestes Maia, in São Paulo, Brazil, there is a 22-story tower block that hosts an estimated 1,630 people, including 468 families with 315 children. Julio Bittencourt, raised in São Paulo, photographed the residents at their windows. Every window is like a theater stage, every person an actor. And most of all, every window is an extention of the residents towards their neighbours: through these windows they fight and make up, they talk, they cry, they fall in love, they grow, they die.
