We created a documentary photographic record of the two saints of the city of Lisbon. The best gift a book can give us is the inner journey it gives us. Let's build this project together!

In Lisbon it is possible to find marks of the presence of the two saints, the photographic project Vicente e António, intended to contribute to the rescue of this presence through photography. The project was produced by a group of 7 photographers who, by making use of the documentary aspect of photography as a recording technique, traveled through the places that still preserve traces of the passage of Saints, in a record of the cultural and religious heritage of the city.

It was in the search for a connection between the two saints and the population of Lisbon that the project was focused and which resulted in the book on the places and stages of the lives of the two saints, in which, in addition to the images of the photographers, there are testimonies, images , the moments of connection to the two saints by those who shared their testimony with us.

Starting from the project conceived by each participating photographer, the Vicente e António project proposed, through the debate of images and contents, to stimulate the creative sense and sought to build a possible – but guaranteed incomplete – portrait of the passage of the two saints in Lisbon through a documentary photographic look.

About the author

The MEF is a non-profit Private Law Association that has been working for 22 years in the area of image, with particular emphasis on photography, aiming to promote a taste for the same among the general public.
It is involved in the search for partnerships with institutions and associations in the area of social dynamism in order to offer training to audiences whose access to educational opportunities may be compromised, such as people with visual, motor or mental disabilities or social and/or social people. or economically deprived.
The MEF is also a facilitator of workshops and gatherings with other photographers and, in its training activities, seeks to create conditions so that, in an inclusive and supportive context, dialogues are established, critical thinking is generated, and there is a constructive sharing of photographic experience.
We also seek to serve as a support platform for its associates, friends and travel companions to develop skills in the field of photography and enjoy opportunities to exhibit and disseminate their work, seeking a photographic, sociological and anthropological approach inserted in a contemporary context where art assumes a determining role as artists recreate meanings through their images.
Through its initiatives, the MEF intends that all citizens have the same opportunities in the use of photography, democratizing its access and enhancing its value as a creative tool.
