Estas são as nossas Forças da Natureza

The Ponta Delgada – Azores 2027 bid for European Capital of Culture has launched the “Forces of Nature” photographic series, by the photographer Paulo Goulart. The aim is to show that our nature is human, by showing people that build the culture of this place.

With these images, we want to illustrate the concept of this bid: a ressignification of “Human Nature”. Here, Nature is the place and Human means its culture.

We are situated in the relationship between these two concepts. 

That connection can be of fear, respect, worship, gift, gratitude and transformation. Culture is all of that.

Through the next weeks, we will be sharing, on our social network pages, photographs of the people that shape this place, and that are shaped by it, also.

We reveal a peek of it on Facebook, but the whole series can be found on our Instagram page. Stay tuned.
