About the Work:
The Municipal Council of Porto is the greatest European landlord, with around 47 low-income neighborhoods, which represent 1/5 of the population of the city.
This project was put together in 4 low-income neighborhoods said to be “hard”. Here, there are specific rules, these are borderline places. The project is mainly constituted by contextualized portraits, where we can feel the neighborhood. Through these images, we are confronted with different attitudes and behaviors, emotions and ways of relating. To get in touch with them is easy if we break the codes. Beyond the images of the bodies are stories if life's hazards.
