Goodbye Gérard

Gérard Castello-Lopes, one of the best known Portuguese photographers died yesterday in Paris. Thanks to him, we now have a good illustration of the 50s in Portugal instead of the regime approved pictures. Some people called him the Portuguese Cartier-Breson. I prefer to say that Castello-Lopes was able to bring an European style to our endogenous country.

Thank you Gérard.
