RUA STAN GETZ by André Cepeda

28 EUR

In 2012 André Cepeda spent three intense months in São Paulo, exploring and photographing the city while reevaluating the very nature of his practice. 
The thrill of discovering a new territory, the endless photographic possibilities and the buzz of the city in contrast with Cepeda's distinctive silent style, reveals the author's work in a completely new light. The result is a warm, colorful labyrinth of this megacity -  its places, streets, architecture and people. Cepeda's managed to create his own São Paulo.
Rua Stan Getz reads like a sensual dream that feels real.

From the artist's notebook:
“ (...) spitting on the ground, pissing in the street, the sound of the saxophone that vibrates and endures and dilutes as I write alone in the studio in São Paulo thinking about the city streets...the decision to turn left or right or to go straight ahead is fascinating and physically demanding. The unexpected and the discovery in every minute that passes; everything is new and the will is strong. I want to be on this endless path, I want the streets to speak to me and teach me how to look and tell me how I should act. it's the images that guide me and make me see what I want to see and discover what I have never seen (....)”

Pierre von Kleist Editions is an artist run publisher specialized in photo books. We are committed to the production of new, innovative photo books and we believe the photo book to be a medium capable of expressing complex, abstract, contemporary issues and to reach a wide audience.

We believe that in a multicultural, globalized world the photo book is one of the privileged mediums. The language of sequential images is, perhaps, today’s most international language, understood by the large majority of the world population. Photo books don’t need translation, they need world distribution. Internet provides an efficient, accessible way for books to reach global audiences.

At PVKe we aim to produce books that transcend the documentary quality that is usually associated with the photography medium. We are interested in artistic achievements and in the specific qualities that the medium offers. We want to make books that tell stories and deal with the contemporary way of living.

The photo book is a complex art form that combines photography, graphic design, cinema, literature, etc. Our goal is to push the limits and conventions of the photo book, contributing to establish it as a respected, mature medium.


Pierre von Kleist editions is based in Lisboa, Portugal and is run by André Príncipe and José Pedro Cortes.
