Inaugurated this Wednesday, ‘Images Nomads 1860-1940’, the temporary exhibition at the Madeira Museum of Photography – Atelier Vicente´s can be seen until 25 January 2020.
The opening of the show was attended by the President of the Regional Government, who classified it as unique. Miguel Albuquerque highlighted the photographs of an expedition to the South Pole, as well as one from Japan. For the governor, the exhibition allows “to see the tourists’ view of Madeira, an idyllic view in the photographs taken by travellers.”
‘Nomadic Images 1860-1940’ is divided into three themes: ‘Tourist Image of Madeira’, ‘Western Image of the Exotic Far World’ and ‘Imperial Images – Scientific and Political Travel’, and together shows about 100 photographs, plus other media and formats, such as albums, picture postcards, and old tourist promotion brochures.
As with the permanent exhibition and the first temporary exhibition of the Madeira Photography Museum – Atelier Vicente´s, this show is also curated by Emília Tavares to which Margarida Medeiros joined this time. The exhibition complements the International Photography and Travel Congress, which takes place this Thursday and Friday at the Jesuit College.
