Postcards from Portugal – Future Memories
The “Future Memories” prize is a joint action between Encontros da Imagem and Scopio Editions, which aims to highlight the best authorial photography projects on the Memories of Portugal.
For over a decade the Encontros da Imagem festival took the initiative of registering, through photographic orders, the pulse of the city of Braga by the hand of several invited authors that are now part of its historical collection.
In its 26th edition, the International Photography Festival Encontros da Imagem aims to add new shape and dimension to the project “Future Memories” or “Memórias da Cidade”. In this way, along with Scopio editions, the Festival reiterates the will to launch national authors through a public call, which will provide these artists with opportunities for promotion and publishing, and to enrich the ecosystem of Visual Arts. With this goal in mind, we have launched the project “Future Memories” in a way of strengthening the promotion of national artists and of thinking critically about the place of “memory” and “future” in Portugal nowadays.
With this selection we reveal the fact that the country has been multitudinously transformed in multiple layers, and that the selected authors aim to reveal the contrasts and features that portray both Portugal and the stories they have created.
