‘A Tribute’ is my first outdoor exhibit in Lisbon. It was opened in 2009 and has been ongoing until today. It is a collaborative community project involving the elderly in an area of Mouraria called São Cristovão. At least 25 photographs of local residents are exhibited on the walls of a tiny alley called ‘the beco das farinhas’. Residents volunteer to have their photograph taken and choose the one on display. They have their name (in large letters at their request on the photograph!) Every year I add images to the exhibit. It has been a success in every aspect – the elderly are proud and love the attention and it brings an imediate intimacy/welcome for visiters to the area. The  photographs are printed either onto wood or directly onto the wall using a liquid silver emulsion.
