While flying over Ibirapuera Park, Fernanda was able to see the exact concept of what Oscar Niemeyer designed in 1954: "It's a real Oca!," in all its immensity and strength. The impressive aerial view prompted the photographer to launch Project Breu.

The series shows popular places around São Paulo in the author's special way of appreciating the city. The precise and meticulous work required previous study of the places given the narrow margin for errors.

Operating in restricted air space, the challenging situation of each shot are captured in photos taken in a helicopter with its doors open as the photographer dangled by her safety belt.

The results were images of spaces marked by color and strong contrasts amidst the city's enormous shadows.
