Summary
This photographs are part of an ongoing project that I have been carrying out in recent weeks and which involves placing old photographs of Macau, taken in black and white between the 1940s and 1990s, in the same places today. The original images, many captured by unknown authors, such as this photograph, are part of my personal collection of old photographs, acquired in auctions and antique houses. The idea is to make about 100 photographs, produce an exhibition and publish a book.
This photographs are part of an ongoing project that I have been carrying out in recent weeks and which involves placing old photographs of Macau, taken in black and white between the 1940s and 1990s, in the same places today. The original images, many captured by unknown authors, such as this photograph, are part of my personal collection of old photographs, acquired in auctions and antique houses. I continue to seek and acquire more old photographs in this phase of my project. The idea is to make about 100 photographs. It's a pioneer project in Macao, no one did until now, so I'm very excited about that.

This is a project that is very importante because Macao changed a lot in the last 50 years. So my intention is also to show that changes based on a different narrative, putting old pictures in new places.

I have a lot of partnerships, local and abroad ones, with private organisations. Beside that, I have intention to produce an exhibition (itinerate) and publish a book. Maybe is my last big project related to Macau because me and my family we have intention to return to Portugal in 2023.
