PORTUGAL IN B&W: THE SEARCH COMES TO AN END / Part 1

A few days ago I was writing about how hard it was to find a black & white photobook by a Portuguese photographer in Lisbon (read the whole story here: A Short Lisbon Story).

On my last day in Portugal I checked the recommended Gulbenkian bookshop, and voilà: There it was! So pure, so clean, so black, and white: Gérard Castello-Lopes book “Apparitions”.

Thanks to shop assistant Miguel (who’s brother studies music in Vienna btw; saxophone and cello) for giving me a student discount on this wonderful book (and he was right: I’ll never stop being a student of life). If you should read this: Thanks for your help (calling a friend to ask for other bookshops, searching for other books etc.) and I hope your cold is better now!
