This city is yours! (2022) is a collection of candid street photographs I took in Porto between 2018 and 2019. This was a period of major renovation and modernization to the city, a time of constant construction. Streets were improved, squares embellished, buildings erected and new houses were built where space allowed.
Changes were happening on a personal level as well. I had recently moved to Porto, become a father and life was moving forward at a rapid pace. As the city became a backdrop to my own tumultuous life, I started to imagine the stories of others.
Using the streets of Porto as a set, I searched for drama in the everyday life of strangers. With a nod to film noir ‘This city is yours!’ comes together like a collection of movie stills rather than a comprehensive story, blending my personal state of mind with overdramatized chance encounters.
