Lisbon on Film exhibition summary

Back in 2019 I decided to take part in a collective exhibition organized through a Facebook group – Lisbon Analogue Photography. The initial plan was to show our photos in 2 different spots – Livraria Ferin and Ler Devagar – both are libraries located in Lisbon, Portugal. The final decision was that exhibition consists of 7 photographers and each will display 6 photos taken with a film camera. As the title says it was photos of Lisbon presented through the unique vision and framing of each one of us.

Unfortunately, the exhibition at Ler Devagar had to be closed early due to the current situation and instead being on display for nearly 3 weeks, the place was closed after around a week or so.

Nevertheless, it was a great experience for me and I believe the other photographers share the same feeling. Even more special for me, because it was my first exhibition ever. At this point I would like to thank each one involved in organizing the whole thing and allowing us to display our frames at their spaces.

No more talking – below is a collage of my photos I printed for this exhibition.

I decided not to add any titles and just leave it for the viewer for interpretation.

Few architecture shots in black and white

I had about 2 hours to use on photographing and I decided I will go to Marques Pombal in Lisbon and walk around. The goal was to capture some buildings with pixação, but it turned out they have been cleaned. So I kept on going – from Marques Pombal along Avenida Liberdade to Restauradores and got some nice shots of other buildings in the area. This time all of them are in 1×1 format and in black and white. Enjoy 🙂

Time for analogue shots

Not many people still shoot film nowadays. No wonder… It’s expensive and we all know that price plays huge role in our ability of maintaining our hobbies. Recently price of a single roll of film went up due to some producers leaving the market and others explaining the production costs went up as well. But there are still a lot of awesome photographers using analogue techniques to show us the beauty of shooting film. To name a few of my favorites: Estevan Oriol, Mateusz Hajman, OzGFK and Lisbon based photographer Diogo Smith.

While I’m waiting for the scans of my first roll dedicated to just one model, here are some of my favorite color captures I took over the years. And I will keep on shooting film, as much as I can (afford).
