“You don’t just need a Leica, you also need a head and an eye.”
May23

“You don’t just need a Leica, you also need a head and an eye.”

In 1914 Oskar Barnack, an employee at the optics enterprise Leitz in the German town of Wetzlar and a passionate amateur filmmaker, developed the first miniature camera that did not use glass plate exposure like other cameras at the time, but roll film. After its introduction to the market in 1924 it became a worldwide success and its compact size enabled a whole new kind of photography.

A Song is a Weapon

Protest songs are common in every country. Mainly throughout the 60’s and 70’s, when rock and folk became charged with political and social statements about the world, sex, work, power, relations between people, discrimination. They call for change and denounce that which is wrong. Protest songs are especially important and courageous in countries where fighting oppression can cost you your life. And that was the case in Portugal during the 40 year period of the dictatorship that ended with the Carnation Revolution in 1974.
