Manoel de Oliveira Photographer
To accompany the exhibition Manoel de Oliveira: Photographer, Casa do Cinema Manoel de Oliveira / Serralves Foundation has published a book dedicated to photographs belonging to the director's collection.
Produced between the late 1930s and mid-1950s, these images, kept for several decades and mostly unpublished, reveal not only an unknown facet of the filmmaker – his activity as a photographer – but also launch new hypotheses for look at the evolution of your cinematographic work.
The book also features essays by António Preto, Bernardo Pinto de Almeida, David Campany, Emília Tavares and Maria do Carmo Serén.
Manoel Cândido Pinto de Oliveira, born in Porto, was the director with the longest career in the history of cinema.
With a filmography that includes more than fifty titles, he was the only filmmaker to move from silent cinema to sound cinema, from black and white to color and from nitrate film to digital support.
Known as "the Mestre", Manoel de Oliveira was internationally recognized by the most important film festivals in the world as an exponent of cinematographic art and also for his longevity, receiving the title of "oldest active director", as he continued to film up to 106 years.
