From 10th September to the 23rd October, this photographic exhibition will be showing the work of 5 photographers: Georges Dussaud, Luís Pavão, Luísa Ferreira, Camilla Watson and Carlos Morganho.

The exhibition will be held in the Photographic Section of the Lisbon Municipal Archive (Arquivo Municipal de Lisboa – Arquivo Fotográfico), located at Rua da Palma 246, close to the Martim Moniz square and just a short walking distance from our Duplex Mouraria Apartment. It will show photos of the Mouraria district from the early 20th Century until today.

This photographic archive contains approximately 600,000 images, of which 93,000 are digitalised and available for public viewing.

The collection has immense value as a homage to the history of Lisbon, as it documents all aspects of the city – urban, architectural, social, political, personal – and also to the history of photography in Portugal, due to the photohraphers represented and also the photographic processes maintained there since 1850.

The exhibition will be inaugurated on 10th September at 6pm and will run every day from 10am to 6:30pm (12-13 September, 11am – 8pm. 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month, 10am to 5:30pm).
