Important links related to this post:
- Chaves- link to the official site of our municipality
link to a great blog (“Olhares sobre a cidade”), run by Fernando Ribeiro, daily updated, in which different themes are approached, from politics to poetry. Some posts are closely related to our town’s issues; others refer to universal questions and matters. (While visiting the blog you are tuned to a radio station. This is quite something!)
Besides that Fernando Ribeiro usually posts some of his photos, always quite good ones, whether from specific scheduled issues as for example about our villages surrounding, or from “instantaneous” events he finds relevant witnessing through his camera and sharing with people. His aim is mainly to make people aware of what’s happening around them, or simply to call their attention to something they hadn’t noticed / realized before.
Being an artist, more than a simple photographer, Fernando Ribeiro has “the eye”. The eye and the love for his art. That’s why his sensitivity guides him towards quite simple, rather “unseen” stuff for the eyes of ‘the common people’ where he finds beauty that he keeps in the eternal memory of a photo.
He shares those tiny, great, awesome things in this blog, as well. And we all are so very grateful, mainly because he’s one of our best ambassadors and all his work is done for free.
