“I feel that the sentiment drawn from fiction is no less authentic, pungent and lasting than what the best in reporting is capable of documenting.” Pedro Letria

The Club is an experiential journey through the Portuguese Social Clubs in the Providence, Rhode Island, area; a journey in which photography and writing are the primary actions. Along its course, Pedro Letria looks at his own displacement as a Portuguese national in the United States through the plural manifestations of Portuguese immigrants in their spaces of communal togetherness.

Pedro Letria was born in Lisbon, Portugal in 1965. A photographer and graduate from the Rhode Island School of Design, Pedro Letria has authored 6 books resulting from personal long term projects. His work has been widely exhibited in and outside Portugal.

NEW BOOK: ‘JAPAN DRUG’ by António Júlio Duarte

Pierre von Kleist editions is proud to announce a new title:
JAPAN DRUG by António Júlio Duarte

“It was 1997 and the new millennium was imminent, one could feel the tense anticipation about what was to come next.
I was alone in Japan, a place I had never been before. During the day I would go out looking for my own sense of the place, photographing, exploring notions of center, a place of convergence, as the world expanded before me in its uncertain course.
Many years have passed and I felt a need to go back to these images.The millennium is long gone but the vertigo of uncertainty is yet to disappear.”
António Júlio Duarte

136 pages / Softcover / 26.5×18.5 cm / Edition of 600
Pierre von Kleist editions, 2014

14 Km a sul de Lisboa, onde vivo, fica a Costa da Caparica.
Durante os últimos anos recorrentemente voltei a este local magnético.
José Pedro Cortes

Em COSTA, fazemos um percurso físico e mental por este território: casas rudimentares, abandonadas, com pouca razão de existir; arquitectura fora de tempo, sujidade vinda com a maré, aglomeração de vegetação e ruas intemporais. COSTA leva-nos para um um local periférico e de fim de linha, carregado com uma estranha luminosidade – uma luz excessiva e misteriosa que confere a estes espaços um ambiente desconcertante e irreal. Como algo visto no decurso de um estado hipnótico que incita o espectador a um jogo sugestivo e paradoxal entre a experiência individual e a consciência pública; entre a factografia e a imaginação.
