Acordo Fotográfico — a blog about people , books and photographs which honors the act of reading — was released in 2011 and now needs to acquire a new photographic equipment in order to continue to " hunt " readers in Portugal and throughout the world .

Launched in December 2011, Acordo Fotográfico is a blog about people, books and photographs which honors the act od reading.

In Acordo Fotográfico images are inseparable from the texts that accompany them. Together, photographs and texts form a block, a unit. Photographs record the moment ; words contextualize the images and provide a narrative : who is the reader , what is he reading, where and why.

 

In these almost four years, Acordo Fotográfico questioned, photographed and talked to nearly 400 readers in countries from all continents - Portugal , Spain, Italy , Germany , Brazil , Australia , East Timor , Malaysia, Thailand , Laos , Cambodia, Vietnam , China , India , Zanzibar , South Africa , Sao Tome and Principe and Cape Verde ; formed a partnership with the Municipal Library Almeida Garrett, in Porto, to shoot users to read on their premises (photos which led later to an exhibition in the same library) ;formed a partnership with OPorto Metro, to shoot users reading on platforms and carriages (images that were later exposed regularly in the Metro Television) ; held five photographic exhibitions ; was present in some television programs, especially the interview with Valter Hugo Mother in Porto Canal ; and participated in the first edition of the Santo Tirso TEDx .

 

Unfortunately , at this time, Acordo Fotográfico is in a deadlock : the old camera - bought second-hand five years ago - urgently needs to be replaced. And this happens at time when , although with a lot more free time to invest in the project ( since I am temporarily unemployed ) , I do not have financial conditions to invest in new photographic material. Therefore, I come to ask you to help me raise an amount that will allow me to purchase a new camera . 2000 Euros is the value I established as a goal.  Can I count on you ?

 

I hope you find Acordo Fotográfico worthy of your generosity and I thank you in advance for all your help!

About the author

Acordo Fotográfico is a brainchild of Sandra Barão Nobre who photographs and writes the texts. She is the only responsible for mantaining the blog and the respective page on Facebook. The author has a degree in International Relations from the Technical University of Lisbon and worked for eleven years as a Content Manager in the largest Portuguese online bookshop - www.wook.pt ( belonging to Porto Editora Group ) - where she had team coordination functions . Before that, she was as intern in TVI , worked in Telecel SA , held an internship of one year in Uruguayan - Portuguese Chamber of Commerce (in Montevideo, under the Contact Program ) , and worked in the marketing department of the Serralves Foundation . She can't pass without reading and loves to travel , and has been shooting readers in all the countries she visits. Learning is her greatest stimulus.

Budget and due dates

I intend to raise 2000 Euro until December the 31th.

The amount raised will be used to acquire a new photographic equipment:

- 1 Fujifilm Camera Kit XT1 + 18-35mm Lens ( € 1,300 approx. )

- 1 Lens Fuji 35 mm / 1.4 ( € 500 approx. )

    Dear anonymous investors

    In your quality of unidentified backers, and since it is impossible to send you a personalized thank you message, I come to express my immense gratitude for your support trough this public comment. Your generosity moves me. Thank you so so much!

    Yesterday, December the 24th, I managed to overcome the barrier of € 1,800 raised. I now have a week to get less than € 200. I know it is possible. :)

    I take this opportunity to wish you all a very happy Christmas and an incredible new year!

    Best wishes,
    Sandra

    Na vossa qualidade de ANI (Apoiantes Não Identificados) e na impossibilidade de vos enviar mensagens de agradecimento personalizadas, venho desta forma manifestar a minha imensa gratidão pelo apoio que deram à angariação de fundos para a compra da nova câmara. A vossa generosidade emociona-me. Bem hajam!

    Hoje consegui ultrapassar a barreira dos 1700€ angariados. Tenho agora uma semana para conseguir 300€. Sei que é possível. :)

    Aproveito para vos desejar um Natal muito feliz, passado em paz com aqueles que mais amam. E que 2016 seja de arromba!

    Beijinhos a todos,
    Sandra
