The photographic exhibition “Mechanics of Water and Time”, by Pedro Queiroga, was inaugurated yesterday, August 19th, at the exhibition room of the Algarve Regional Coordination and Development Commission (CCDR Algarve), in Faro.
The show reveals details of the Água de Monchique bottling plant and is comprised of two dozen high-resolution images, which can be visited free of charge until September 27, within CCCDR Algarve office hours.
Not intending to “constitute itself as a documentary reportage of the Água Monchique factory, but rather a deconstruction of it”, says Pedro Queiroga, Portuguese professional photographer, who began his career in photography at the age of 14 in Macau.
Just yesterday, August 19, was celebrated World Photography Day, which is celebrated since the first permanent photographic process was patented and released for free to the world. The Frenchman Louis Daguerre created the daguerreotype, whose essentials were ready in 1837, but only two years later, on August 19, 1839, did he complete the process.
In the last two weeks of September it is possible to make visits of schools subject to prior appointment.
