'Come and see'
And I looked, and behold the pale horse,
and he that sat on him was dead.
'Blue Mud Swamp'.
The shoreline, hot and humid, is a postcard that attracts and invites Men to settle where the land meets the Yellow Sea. However, the reality is dissonant. Although surrounded by natural beauty, beaches and entertainment facilities, the city and its urban spaces transmits, as a whole, a feeling of artificiality. In some cases the abundance created a certain degradation and abandonment. With a splendor that takes us back to a recent past, a certain melancholy is present, as happens with all that was new, colorful and perfect but perished with time. Dalian, China.
'Blue Mud Swamp' is Filipe Casaca's second book. His first book 'my home is where you are'('a minha casa é onde estás') was published in 2011.
