feel that the sentiment drawn from fiction is no less authentic, pungent and
lasting than what the best in reporting is capable of documenting.” - Pedro Letria
The Club is an experiential journey through the Portuguese Social Clubs in the Providence, Rhode Island; a journey in which photography and writing are the primary actions. Along its course, Pedro Letria looks at his own displacement as a Portuguese national in the United States through the plural manifestations of Portuguese immigrants in their spaces of communal togetherness.
Pedro Letria was born in Lisboa, Portugal, in 1965. A photographer
and graduate from the Rhode Island School of Design, Pedro Letria has
authored 6 books resulting from personal long term projects. His work
has been widely exhibited in and outside Portugal
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
