This work appears as a comment on Leonel Moura’s Portugal series, where the artist ellects already famous personalities of the portuguese history and culture like Am├ília Rodrigues, and Fernando Pessoa, placing the word “Portugal” (white on a black rectangle) over the eyes or mouth of each personality’s picture.
Portugueses shows eleven black and white faces of unknown portuguese people of all ages. I printed the images in my b/w photo lab at home, out of more than thousand glass negatives I had found buried on an open field near a prision in Lisbon in 1987. They document portuguese prisioners ranging from the1910’s to the 1940’s.
The word portugueses (portuguese in english) was placed in day-glo stickers, one word in each person’s forehead.
