Throughout its history, Lisbon has seduced visitors from the four corners of the world. The enduring fascination of this city has much to do with its proximity to the river and its unique aura of brightness. This is the side of Lisbon that is captured here, in its duality of light and shade.
Made up of over 150 photographs, this project invites us to rediscover Porto, the Unvanquished, and its river. Transformed by the creative vision of two photographers and their moulding of light at dusk and through the night. The images on these pages are more than a simple record of places: they reflect a dialogue between light and the eye.
As a real invitation to travel, Portugal Iluminado proposes an essentially different view on this country, displayed here through a unique theme: that of evening or night lighting of cities, villages, towns, chosen more for their expressive potentialities rather than for their geographic or administrative importance.
