A temporary photo exhibition at the Belém Cultural Centre, Lisboa - The 10th of April 2016

I have been to a temporary black and white photo exhibition at CCB this morning, which I thoroughly enjoyed, despite the fact that there weren't but a few photos in display. said to be a sample of the author's photo archive of over 30,000 images pertaining to a collection named Walls of the World.

Burhan Dogançay is a well known Turkish photographer who recently passed away (2013), whose work has been praised for its focusing on structures, signs and symbols subject to no geographical, political, cultural, racial and styllistic limitations.

In his own words "Walls are the mirrors of society. They are the surface where every emotion, news and event is written for the world."
