Please consider invited to visit our Festival in the open holy week 15-20 of September in Braga”
Sadly I couldn’t visit Braga as a selection of my work was projected in a nighttime exhibition. Sounds beautiful, but that old thing called a ‘job’ keeps getting in the way!
HOPE NIGHT PROJECTION . Through this action, the festival gets closer to the community and values the importance of photography in the construction of collective memory. Facing the challenge of critical reflection about the place of Faith and Hope in the national and inter national art and culture scene as well as proposing new approaches to their visual exploration.
The project presents photographers from around the world in a documentary exploration of contemporary photography. The result is a slide show which is a presentation of similarities and contrasts a visual narrative about the desires / anxieties of the human being. This project hopes to contribute to the strengthening of emerging projects and to establish the cooperation between participating organizations.
