À sombra de Deus (In the shadow of God)
In 2018 I was invited by Alfredo Cunha to develop a photographic project about Braga as part of the 28th edition of “Encontros da Imagem”.
I accepted immediately. I grew up in Braga. I love the city.
I decided to immerse myself into the city and, in a flash of light, I feel reborn in the shadow of each stone, the very stones that built my identity. I revolve indivisible. I take a shortcut in narratives born before all centuries in this city that is mine. They are lived and dreamt fragments of the place where I grew up. I am part of Braga as I am part of any other city. I meet old friends and meet new people. I try not to arrange anything, I let life happen. Braga has changed and so have I. I explore the city, I live it as intensely as possible and, simultaneously, experience a shadow mirage revisited in this light that is mine.
Interestingly, or maybe not, I continue to photograph and live this city that I feel.
Braga, the city of the archbishops, where I grew up and of which I have deep memories, a conservative and young city, where everything happens, in the Shadow of God.
