Porto - Diálogos com a Cidade
Palácio das Artes, 5th September to 1st October 2014
Some say photography is the form of artistic expression closest to writing. The images that retain the poetry of the city, in its blacks and grey - this tonal range so characteristic of Porto - allows us to feel and better experience our town in its present moment, through this intimate narrative in search of a strong sensorial involvement. With the proposal of this singular vision of the elements of the city, reflecting its strong character and personality and valuing its heritage, architecture and urban life, we expect to motivate the observer for a journey of constant discovery, experimentation and knowledge of the place.
