Lonely Houses I Found In Portugal

My “lonely houses” started when I was very little, and realized there was a dichotomy between the feeling of “home” I had inside of me, and what I was perceiving outside, in the place where I was born.

My houses often have the vibrancy of the place where I grew up, but they may confuse the viewer. Sometimes they may feel lost, and out of place. Some other times, they have a sense of self-containment, and of human warmth inside. My houses will always carry elements of the child in me, and my home dichotomy. I am also documenting their own personalities, in the geographical and cultural context where they exist.

Today, I continue to search for that home I seem to have forgotten in the traditional houses of Portugal, where I live now. I capture them with my mobile phone, and edit them (also on my phone) to bring them as close as possible to the way my eyes see them.

Right outside the framed there is probably a structure. Nice pictures non the less.

You are right, but here it was important to me to focus on each house, alone. Thank you! :)
