Família Aeminium is a new book by filmmaker Pedro Costa and sculptor Rui Chafes.
A mysterious sequence of photographs done during the exhibition Família conceived by the artists for the Roman Cryptoporticus in the city of Coimbra.
The Cryptoporticus, suspended in time, vacant and silent, was once a lively and vibrant forum.
The sculptures and the images living in these distant chambers, recall the lost gazes, the memory of whispers and movements.

Pierre von Kleist Editions is an artist run publisher specialized in photo books. We are committed to the production of new, innovative photo books and we believe the photo book to be a medium capable of expressing complex, abstract, contemporary issues and to reach a wide audience.
We believe that in a multicultural, globalized world the photo book is one of the privileged mediums. The language of sequential images is, perhaps, today’s most international language, understood by the large majority of the world population. Photo books don’t need translation, they need world distribution. Internet provides an efficient, accessible way for books to reach global audiences.
At PVKe we aim to produce books that transcend the documentary quality that is usually associated with the photography medium. We are interested in artistic achievements and in the specific qualities that the medium offers. We want to make books that tell stories and deal with the contemporary way of living.
The photo book is a complex art form that combines photography, graphic design, cinema, literature, etc. Our goal is to push the limits and conventions of the photo book, contributing to establish it as a respected, mature medium.
Pierre von Kleist editions is based in Lisboa, Portugal and is run by André Príncipe and José Pedro Cortes.For sales and inquiries, please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
