Marco Lapini – DIARIO DE RUA LUSITANO
I traveled 22 days on the road from north to south of Portugal, touching the coast, the cities, the most authentic and least known areas of the interior of the country. From populated and bustling neighborhoods, to small fishing villages, to beaches, to the religious silence of Fatima. Backpack and camera with one goal: to give me “my” Portugal, my personal vision of this country. Knowing, discovering and telling in my own way what I felt during my trip, coming into direct contact with the thing that excites me most: the road. A black and white with strong tones and contrasts, through shots that are also imperfect from a technical point of view, to get out of what is the classic Portugal that is portrayed in the perfection of its bright colors. I walked a lot through the streets, to get to know a more authentic social cross-section, to meet the locals in their daily lives, I took trains and buses finding myself in front of many faces, listening to chatter or simply observing the silence. In search of “my” Portugal.
