Leticia’s Dairy

In an artistic residence promoted by the Fujifilm FIF Viseu, the brasilian Leticia Valverdes runs a very interesting project that explores the concepts of memory, nostalgia, the past and local culture.

Leticia’s Grandmother, Crescenciana Espírito Santo, born in Mundão, in the district of Viseu, emigrated to Brazil in 1921 and never returned to Portugal. Leticia’s intention is to return to Mundão and region, discovering the life that her grandmother could have lived had she never left – the people she could have known, the places where she could have spent her time – and create with the photographed people postcards that her Grandmother never received.
