We are cordially inviting you to the opening of Luis RAMOS: Loneliness, program by Camões Institute Centre for Portuguese Language & Budapest Photo Festival at Turbina Cultural Center by the presence of the artist.
„Loneliness” is not intended to show or describe a situation or tell a story, but rather to convey a feeling that can turn into melancholy, or depression if taken to the extreme. The being is not free to choose loneliness, to the extent that loneliness is imposed on him by the very nature of being. However our relationship and closeness to the other are part of the choice of each one – almost always. During the period in which these photographs were taken, between December 2020 and February 2021, our capacity of decision was limited by the government and health authorities who kept us confined to our homes for long periods, depriving us from the freedom of choice and movement. As a result, city streets and public places became lifeless, leaving us with a deep feeling of loneliness.
