This initiative, promoted in partnership with AFAA – Association of Amateur Photographers of the Azores, was looking for images that illustrate the theme of the application, Human Nature, in a challenge to think about the Culture of the Place, the evolutionary relationships of fear, respect, care, construction between human beings and nature and the appreciation of our sense of Humanity and respect for Nature as one.
The photographs will be released at the time of the public exhibition.
