O que foi não volta ser...

This book is the final result of a project carrying out between November 2021 and November 2022 that involves placing old photographs of Macau, taken in black and white between the 1930s and 1990s, in the same places today. The original images, many captured by unknown authors, are part of my personal collection of old photographs, acquired in auctions and antique houses.

Preface by Maria de Belém Roseira

"The concept, one supposes, may not be entirely unique, but it is nevertheless clever and well-executed. The black and white past floats ghostly in the full-colored present, a sort of historical augmented reality made concrete" -
