Last month, as the world was paying attention to Brazil's showcase of the World Cup, we ran a city guide to Sao Paulo, as instructed by Baglione brothers William and Herbert. Now, William has a series of photographs, Coffee or Cigarettes, from August 9—14 with Winterlong Galerie in France. Check the postcard for more information, as there are two shows going on at once!

Os Gemeos have always been synonymous with Brazil and the city of São Paulo. But it didn't even fully register until the twins painted the Brazilian National Football (Soccer) team's plane for the upcoming 2014 World Cup that the fact that they had become a national treasure was a reality. That is quite a big deal. There have been rumblings and clues that Os Gemeos have something big planned in the coming days/weeks, and we were lucky enough to get a visit to their studio a few months back to check in and say hello.

Sao Paulo-based photographer and ex-pro skater Fabiano Rodrigues has taken a wonderful series of self-portraits of himself skating in superbly chosen and composed locations, often museums, and outside/in architectural landmarks around the city. Taken with a Hasselblad and remote control, the one off prints explore "the history and repertoire of skateboarding movements, particularly its relationship with the city, its architecture and urban furniture."
