The Castle Tower of Silves hosts, between April 12 and July 10, the photography exhibition “Time Lapses – In the Algarve, a Parar o Tempo”, by João António Fazenda. The exhibition portrays images of an Algarve, fleeting and changeable, real or dreamed but always beautiful, captured by the photographer, with his eyes, with his underlying imaginary, also marked by the passing of time. According to the author, an Algarve photographer, “to photograph is to make a cut in time; it is, in a way, to stop it, the instant the camera’s shutter is released. The resulting images are pieces of time that are retained in them.” The exhibition takes place as part of the commemorations of the International Day for Monuments and Sites. Enjoy the heritage and discover the magnificent images of João António Fazenda.
