Photograph by Stuart Franklin

Done up in pink, a Chihuahua dances for its owner in São Paulo's Ibirapuera Park. The troubled, workaholic city dares to show its frivolous side in this equivalent of New York's Central Park. Particularly on Sundays, residents from all parts of São Paulo—and from all classes—mix in this urban playground. They then retreat to the city's economically segregated enclaves.
