The purpose of this photography project is to present the Lisbon city through photographs, keeping the spirit spontaneous and free of constraints. I have chosen Lisbon because is where I live and want to share this amazing city.
Lisbon has so many special things; it’s the sound of vintage trams rambling up and down cobblestone streets, a medley of heartfelt Fado songs, an open-air gallery of historic heritage, a haven for free spirits, a surprise for fashionable shoppers and Portugal’s ‘coolest’ city. According to legend, the city of Lisbon was originally built on seven hills and stretches out along the Tagus River in an undulating landscape of maze-like paths, clusters of Art Nouveau buildings, magnificent landmarks, countless museums, fabulous hotels, scattered café terraces and magnificent viewpoints.
TRYING TO SHOOT MORE FILM PHOTOGRAPHY
DEVELOPING YOUR OWN PHOTOGRAPHS IS SOMETHING MAGIC. THE GRAIN OF THE FILM IS UNIQUE AND THE PICTURES SEEM MORE AUTHENTIC. IF WE USE OLD LENSES IT WILL HAVE A SPECIAL APPEARANCE AND WITH ITS OWN CHARACTERISTICS. NOTHING REPLACES THE MAGIC OF A NEGATIVE OF A FILM ROLL. WITHOUT DOUBT, IN THE LAST YEARS, FILM PHOTOGRAPHY HAS INCREASED IN POPULARITY. YES, THE FILM IS STILL ALIVE :) The images with the tag #DIGITAL were taken using a digital camera, with the tag #FILM/ANALOG were taken with analog camera.
IF YOU WANT TO SUPPORT ME AS AN ARTIST, PLEASE CHECK MY FOUNDATION.APP/@RBFIGUEIRA. I will be eternally grateful for your help, being able to dedicate more and more time to this project. Below you can find some of the images that will gradually be available on the platform. Not all, of course, will be chosen but all of them are part of this ongoing and daily project of discoveries around Lisbon. Every week, for over 15 years, I've been doing this street photography walks. I have a lot of work to select and many rolls of film still to be developed and every week this is increasing.... :///
