Fulfill a dream
João Varela

More than capturing the expession of the actor transmuted in the character he plays - and that shows through on photography with a plasticity that is utterly different than that of acting in itself - I wanted, with this work, to remember that we can and should fulfill our dreams, even if it's only some of them.

These pictures are from a dream of my friend J Grego who always felt he would like to act. It was his dream, but like most of us, he wouldn't have time to do it. Yet one day he did it. And it was incredible.

We never have time. It's true, but I keep believing we can create time, even these days when this is a so rare and precious asset.

Nuns Who Go Underground
Manuel Luís Cochofel

The almost perfect posture, of a figure in the landscape. Its weight. The dynamism of its human body, raising itself in two feet. The situation is nailed: it walks, it turns and follows. Great steps, walking in springing nights with dark walls, side by side with sleepy houses. And, when beating the sky with little strength, snores are hearded.
