Exhibition “Those who stay”

S. Bento railway station and the historic center of Porto are, par excellence, a touristic territory target by flashes. With this work we return the place to its inhabitants, leading them to share the look bearing upon it, making them tourists in their own city.

Three photographers and a journalist shared the lives of five citizens, which ones,  with their stories, portray the other side of this territory, a side marked by experiences of alcoholism, prostitution, homelessness, drug addiction and immigration, experiences which do not override the dimension of the dreams of this stories protagonists.
