Since november 2015, in the 8 cities of the project, 2 photographers have the task to realize the portrait of people who will testify in The Encyclopedia. From a common method (initiated by Bertrand Cousseau and  Paloma Fernández Sobrino in previous projects as Partir) the 16 photographers are using their knowledges and their creativity to co-realize with each migrant person an image that will be include in the book with the intimate letter.

During the next weeks, you will discover the photographers involved in the project.

This week, you’ll discover the work of Carla Rosado and Pablo López. They are working in Lisbon, to realize the portraits of the 50 persons who will contribute to the Encyclopedia.

I studied photography in Granada and Huesca.
I´m interested in the relations between image and writing. And the practice of photography as an investigation of looking, time and thinking.
I´ve been living in Lisbon since 2011.
And I study philosophy.
