This photographs are part of a project that I have been carrying out in late 2021 and 2022 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 produce an exhibition and I published a book that is already in its second edition.
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.
