Vende-se | Augusto Brázio

Vende-se Augusto Brázio 180 pages | 90 photographs 16 cm x 23 cm Offset and Silkscreen Ghost, 2014   In 2013, with dwindling assignments from the newspapers and magazines for which he worked, Augusto Brázio, a freelance photographer, began to wander the streets of Lisbon. He soon discovered innumerable stores with closed shutters. In the centre of Lisbon and surrounding suburbs, in Porto, the Algarve and all over Northern Portugal, thousands of stores had closed. Some still had a “Back soon!” sign on the door while others had clearly been abandoned.
