The starting point for this exhibition was recovering some of the first pieces in the MIS’s collection. Documentation of street photographers working in the early 1970s composes this selection, elaborated by two students. It is the record of a trade that was already vanishing by then and is nowadays part of São Paulo’s memory.
Photographers discuss their first places of work, their daily lives, and their famous clients. Peinado explains that Dom Pedro Park was the place with the most demand in the 1950s, the peak of the profession.
Photographers discuss their dynamics and their personal connection between colleagues and the reason for the nickname “lambe-lambe” for the bellows camera.
Photographers discuss their most common works: postcards and document photographs, their money achievements, the challenges in learning the job, and the profession’s decline.
Photographers talk about rotation between the best work sites. That highlight the importance of the Peinado family for the profession in the city. They mention a few camera manufacturers.
