Pancho Guedes nunca foi ao Japão

Book Launch

Photography by Pancho Guedes in a book by José Luís Tavares, Lucio Magri, João Faria with texts by Marilyn Martin, Eduardo Brito, Mia Couto. “With Pancho Guedes, journeys proliferate, overlap and expand. Just as in the ideal space of dreams, routes are itineraries are not logically planned. Going around the corner in the pulsing heart of New York’s 5th Avenue, you find Tombwa, in the Namib Desert. If you glance out of a Soweto house window you can see Sheffield’s Hyde Park Flats. Believing to be in Eugaria, you find yourself on Eclectica’s biggest island instead.”

Hosted by Palácio Sinel de Cordes, the first-hand presentation of photographic records made over more than six decades, presents unique perspectives of places spread across different continents, and reveals the multidimensional aspects of Guedes' work and the universality of the aesthetic and critical relationship he has always established with that surrounds him.

This book was designed by the studio Drop for the Design School located at Caldas da Rainha, ESAD.
