Book: Pancho Guedes Nunca foi ao Japão - Viagens pelos arquivos fotográficos de A.d'A.M. Guedes (Pancho Guedes never went to Japan - Travelling through the photographic archives of A.d’A.M. Guedes).
Authors: Pancho Guedes (photography), José Luís Tavares, Lucio Magri, João Faria

Edition: ESAD – Arts and Design School of Matosinhos


With Pancho Guedes the travels multiply, overlap, dilate. As in the ideal space of dreams, there's no logic articulation of the itineraries. The presentation of photographic records, made over more than six decades, presents unique perspectives of different places, and reveals the universality of the aesthetic and critical relationship that Pancho Guedes always established with what was around him.

Participation: José Luís Tavares, Lucio Magri, Eduardo Brito, Alexandre Pomar
Organizers: STET, Lisbon Architecture Triennale
