Publisher's Description

14 kms south from Lisboa, where I live, is Costa da Caparica. During the last years I often found myself returning to this magnetic place.
José Pedro Cortes

Costa da Caparica is a place, south of Lisboa - a strip of land that exists between the last stretch of civilization and the beach.

In COSTA, we wander through this territory: shacks, outmoded architecture, remains of houses, dirt left by the tide; an agglomeration of sand, vegetation and streets – a peripheral, end-of-the-line location. We are flooded by a strange luminosity; a dazzling and mysterious light which imbues these spaces with a disconcerting and unreal atmosphere, like something seen while in a hypnotic state, encouraging the spectator to participate in a suggestive and paradoxical exploration of individual experience.
