Álvaro Siza, Terraços de Bragança, Lisboa, 2005 - Wasted Project (1)


This could have been a beautiful White & Blue book, about a beautiful architectural project in Lisbon downtown by Álvaro Siza. Mr. Siza was kind enough, as always, to guarantee all his collaboration, but somehow the book never came to life.

Feeling pity that it remains wasted, I don't want it to be a completely lost project, so I let you enjoy the photographs, while it's publication keeps on waiting for a better opportunity.

Film cameras were used exclusively on the documentation shown above:
- Sinar F2, with Rodenstock and Schneider lenses, for 4x5" and 6x12 (Horseman back);
- Horseman SW612 Pro, with Rodenstock lenses, for 6x12.
- Corfield WA67, Schneider Super-Angulon 47mm, for 6x7.
- Hasselblad 500 C/M, with Carl Zeiss lenses, for 6x6.
Light meter and color meter by Gossen.
Film by Kodak.
Tripods by Gitzo and Manfrotto.
Transparencies and b&w negatives scanned with Epson Perfection 4990.
Assistance by Luís Morais de Sousa, my son.


  1. Boa noite. Se calhar este post já é antigo. Eu vivo nos Terraços de Bragança e fiquei maravilhada com a beleza das fotografias. Ângulos magníficos, perspectivas lindas. Pena que não seja publicado... Talvez mais tarde :)
