This Herberto Smith workshop at Quinta do Lavrado put the participants in contact with the basic knowledge of digital photography and involved them in practices that stimulated the ability to tell stories. Stories that started from the closest and most personal point of view and then expanded to a wider universe. By creating these narratives, we validate our experiences, our feelings and the feelings of those around us. We offer new perspectives and enrich the collective imagination. We put ourselves on the map and show ourselves to the world.


Bio


Herberto Smith is a photographer and cultural activist. He was born in Guinea-Bissau, grew up in São Tomé and Príncipe and currently lives in Lisbon, Portugal. Today he focuses his attention on the everyday life of youths of African descent (African diaspora) in Lisbon. Capturing fragments of everyday life, he reproduces the narratives of those who are rarely reflected in traditional media outlets. His aim is to explore issues affecting the culture of youths of African descent: identity, racial perceptions, social and economic inequalities, and social inclusion. His approach takes on a collaborative component, where the outcome does not intend to represent reality, but captures moments of mutual sharing that encapsulate moods, sensibilities, and aspirations.
