“Memories of Moments - Macao and Lusophone African and Asian Regions in Photograph Postcards” Exhibition

10/6 - 4/12/2016 10:00     Archives of Macao     Admission is free

A photograph postcard is a dual source of information, where an image on the front, which demonstrates the photographer's vision of the society, is complemented with a personal message on the back. Messages on postcards are written accounts of experiences and happenings in different parts of the world and thus enhance the value of postcards as documents. The 20th century marked the beginning of international circulation of postcards and popularization of photography in world history. The exhibition features a selection of over 260 photograph postcards from the image collection of the Archives of Macao to present a big picture of the history and art, urban-architecture, ethnography, economic development, natural environment and other aspects of life in Macao and Angola, Cape Verde, the former Portuguese India, Guinea-Bissau, Mozambique, São Tomé and Principe and East Timor since the first decades of the 20th century.  Admission is free.
