Apresentação do livro 'Fotografias em Obras de Eduardo Souto de Moura' de Luís Ferreira Alves
January 10, 2017, 5h00 pm, Portuguese Architects Council - Lisbon
scopio Editions and photographer Luis Ferreira Alves invites you for the presentation and book launch of “Photography of the Architecture of Eduardo Souto de Moura”, on 10th January at 5p.m., at the Portuguese Architects Council Auditorium. The event will be attended by the photographer, architect, book’s editor and the OA’s chairman.
Luis Ferreira Alves: Photography of the Architecture of Eduardo Souto de Moura published by scopio Editions initiates a collection of publications more focused on Architectural Photography, promoting a global critical analysis of both these worlds, looking for various intersections amongst them, as well as exploring the singular and meaningful relations that are established between the photographer and the architect, their artistic processes, collective memories, stories and other issues related to their work and life paths.
This publication constitutes a unique artifact that integrates handwritten texts, personal stories, drawings and other images besides the photographic images of Eduardo Souto de Moura´s built architecture. The purpose is to make a difference towards other publications, promoting a deeper comprehension of architecture´s practice and discipline that as we know operates within larger systems - socio-cultural, technical, political and historical – revealing how it is possible, based on the relation between the photographer and the architect and his work, to establish a singular and important communication.
