Al-Gharb (Algarve) Portugal

An EXHIBITION OF PHOTOGRAPHS FROM PORTUGAL, 1963

This is part of a series of photographs being exhibited at the ALGARVIDA GALLERY in Praia do Carvoeiro which were taken by me from 1963 onwards, initially for the book "Algarve - A Portrait and a Guide" by Patrick Swift and David Wright. I shall be expanding the exhibition in Algarve and elsewhere in 2009. I have also embarked on another project, revisiting some of the places and people in the "Algarve 1963" series to gather images taken in the present. Of course, some of the places either no longer exist or are inaccessible due to the massive development of tourism. However there are still family connections in buildings and people, and many of the sites still exist in the older parts of towns, especially inland away from the tourist developments. Watch this space for further progress.
