The Georges Dussaud Photography Center, in Bragança, presents until April 17, 2022 the exhibition “Do que a Terra Dá”.
This exhibition brings together, from the collection of the Georges Dussaud Photography Centre, a hundred images captured between 1980 and 2016, highlighting the daily life of many Trás-os-Montes villages.
With the work of the land as a common theme, Georges Dussaud’s images, captured in different times, contexts and geographies, portray men who till the land, women who reap the wheat, whole families, with bent bodies, who pick chestnuts or potatoes, shepherds and herds that traverse hills and valleys in search of what the land offers, abundant vegetable gardens and olive groves, teams of oxen and tractors and also the improvised meals in the short breaks that each hard day allows.
Between documentary and poetry, the images on display reflect the journeys and wanderings carried out by Georges Dussaud over the last forty years, especially in Trás-os-Montes, but also in the Douro, Minho or Alentejo.
With free entry, the exhibition is open until April 17, 2022 and can be visited from 9:00 am to 12:30 pm and from 2:00 pm to 5:30 pm, from Tuesday to Sunday at the Georges Dussaud Photography Center, located in the Paulo Quintela Building – 1 .º floor, Rua Abílio Beça n.º 75/77, in Bragança.
The exhibition “Do que a Terra Dá” is produced by the Municipality of Bragança and the Georges Dussaud Photography Centre, curated by Jorge da Costa.
