Hildegard Rosenthal's photos of São Paulo

Hildegard Rosenthal was born in Zürich, Switzerland and brought up in Germany but she escaped to Brazil before the outbreak of World War II. Nowadays she is considered one of the pioneers of photojournalism in Brazil where she lived and worked as a photographer until her death in 1990.

Below are some of her photos which offer us a glimpse of mid 20th Century São Paulo:
