Exhibition “Lince-Ibérico na Península”

Exhibition “Lince-Ibérico na Península” | CIMBAL – LIFE Lynxconnect

Casa dos Condes – Biblioteca Municipal Carlos Brito, Rua 1º de maio, em Alcoutim

Exhibition developed by CIMBAL, a partner in the LIFE Lynxconnect project, with the technical and scientific support of the Institute for Nature and Forest Conservation (ICNF).

The exhibition aims to make Spanish and Portuguese society aware of the work that has been done, is ongoing and will be developed, in the near future, within the scope of the conservation of the Iberian Lynx, whose itinerancy has passed through the 13 municipalities that make up CIMBAL – Intermunicipal Community of Baixo Alentejo, and by two of the three municipalities in the Algarve (Tavira and Silves). Alcoutim welcomes the exhibition from the 8th to the 30th of November, at Casa dos Condes – Carlos Brito Municipal Library, located on Rua 1º de Maio, in Alcoutim. The inauguration will take place on November 9th, at 4pm and will be entertained by comedian Jorge Serafim.

«The political, administrative, technical and scientific collaboration and articulation developed jointly between Portugal and Spain, since 2004, which allowed the number of Iberian lynx in freedom to be surpassed by 2022, would not have the widely recognized success at a world, if it had not been preceded and accompanied by a strong awareness and involvement of populations, local officials and society in general, including the media», concludes the ICNF.

Photo exhibition “Cerro dos Noivos”

Photo exhibition “Cerro dos Noivos”

de Paulo Martins

Casa dos Condes – Carlos Brito Municipal Library, Rua 1º de maio, Alcoutim

The project “Cerro dos Noivos” is made up of 13 photographs, collected by the author in November 2021 when he accompanied his parents “to the land”, place of Balurcos (Cercado), to help them pick olives, on a small plot of land located on a hill with the same name.

Due to his paternal family connection, trips to Alcoutim, more precisely to the place of Balurcos (Cercado), where his father is from, are frequent and with photography as his passion, the author recorded the moment with the intention of creating memories that he did not have.

From the experience, the author explains that “at the same time as I helped with the olive picking, I was recording the manual work involved in the entire process and my mother’s delivery at that moment, as if it were a ceremony. Strangely enough, or not, coincidence, the land is known as “Cerro dos Noivos”, at times I found myself looking at my mother arranging the white blankets under the olive trees, as if it were a wedding veil. The photographs are the testimonies that record my mother and her inner strength, which, despite her 76 years of age, contrasted with the fragility of my father (the “groom”), shown in the last photograph of the project”.

Photo exhibition “Viagem ao Algarve”

Photo exhibition “Viagem ao Algarve”

Casa dos Condes – Carlos Brito Municipal Library, Rua 1º de maio, Alcoutim

The Regional Directorate of Culture of the Algarve (DRCAlg, presents, on September 8th, at 2:45 pm, at the Casa dos Condes – Carlos Brito Municipal Library – , in Alcoutim, the literary itinerary of Alcoutim, from the “Saramago Literary Route in the Algarve”. This moment will also be marked by the inauguration of the photographic exhibition “Viagem ao Algarve”, a project by the association 1/4 Escuro, Association of Amateur Photographers of Vila Real de Santo António (VRSA), supported by DRCAlg, and carried out in collaboration with the Fundação José Saramago, and the Algarve Tourism Board, which is now hosted by the Alcoutim City Council, as part of the Alcoutim Municipal Festivities celebrations.

The “Viagem ao Algarve” exhibition has already toured Vila Real de Santo António, Castro Marim, Lepe (Huelva), Olhão and Tavira, and will cover all the municipalities that make up the “Saramago Literary Route in the Algarve”.

These projects are an opportunity to make known a territory that has inspired several writers, namely the places, monuments, landscapes, flavors and people, but also to promote the Algarve as a destination for literary tourism.

The motto for creating the itineraries, the so-called “Saramago Literary Route in the Algarve”, was the desire to reflect on the territory: if that was the Algarve seen, in 1980, by José Saramago, what will the Algarve look like now? Seen through the eyes of author Diego Mesa. The challenge for the photographers participating in the project was to visit the aforementioned Algarve municipalities and be inspired, photographically, by the texts written by José Saramago during his visit to the Algarve. The photographer from the Algarve, André Boto, distinguished by the FEP – Federation of Professional European Photographers as “European Photographer of the Year” in 2023, participates in the project with Silves’ photography and with the editing of the remaining photographs selected for the exhibition.
