paisagem estranha entranha Arles

The multimedia project paisagem estranha entranha Arles 2017, was presented during the professional week of the Les Rencontres de la photographie 2017, as part of the Festival Voies Off. Curator (co-curated with Armando Ribeiro), paisagem estranha entranha Arles continues to build on landscape photography in an expanded sense, as the genre – landscape – is here presented also fragmented by practise.

This edition of paisagem estranha entranha had as a base the previous versionsTavira (2012) and Porto (2014) received the first editions and Arles the third and current one. This latter edition made possible showing the work to a wider and more specialised – in things photographic – public. Future versions will, of course, build on the existing foundation and routes.

A big thank you to all those involved, you made it possible, hope you’re all here:
Corinne Dumas, Patrick Massin, Bruno Lopes, Lai Carneiro, Paula Ferreira, Freya Najade, Jenny Sansom, Julie Hascoët, Chris Scott Moskovich, Anne Holmes, Pedro G. Marques,

Milano vista da Miguel Proença

Invitation for the exhibition Milano vista da Miguel Proença, at  “Le Biciclette” gallery, Milan, 18th July 2001. This exhibition resulted from over a year collaboration with the local guide “Free Milano Magazine”. The exhibition included photographs used for magazine covers during 2000-01 as well as reportage work and Fiera di Sinegaglia . Walking, wandering and meandering through central Milano from 1997 to 2001 served as a base for the photographic work.
