Rostos da Maré - Vidas em Rede entre Matosinhos, Vila do Conde e Póvoa do Varzim

“Project about three fishing communities that reflects the coexistence of people connected to the sea in these three places in the Porto Metropolitan Area.
It builds an interdisciplinary artistic practice, where photography, text, interviews, music and design coexist with the aim of raising the importance of the life stories of people with a personal and professional passion for the sea.
This project integrates a contemporary approach, in which two forms of photographic representation coexist that accompany the development of the history of photography, in these almost two centuries that it has existed: family or popular photography (as Liz Wells calls it, to avoid what she considers reductive in the popular term), which had an important contribution to the construction of photography and memory: and professional authorial and expository photography, which appears here with a contemporary interpretive intervention, carried out in the studio by five authors - photographers capable of live in contrast and harmony.”
