O Livro da Patrícia



In Stock

When the photographer Patrícia Almeida died in November 2017, she left unfinished a book project about her "Personal History of Photography". Months before, she had started gathering documents: examples she gave to her students, obsolete manuals bought second-hand, her first photographs. On the day of his death, the funeral director's representative asked for a portrait for the wake. Which photo to choose? Which person to show? How to summarize, reduce and concentrate a person in a single image? Patrícia's Book relates the search for this impossible image and revisits the photographer's unfinished project by confronting the production of photographs with the creation of identities, of memories, of ghosts.
