André Cepeda usually moves around with a 4x5 view camera - a box - and a tripod. Yet his pictures feel as if taken by a stray dog, scanning the city surfaces with his wet snout.
Following his earlier projects Depois, Rien and Ontem, "Ballad of Today" renews Cepeda's intensity and clarifies his language. The result is a haunting ballad of a city – Lisbon. A ballad of the city system, of society today, of our individual and collective existence.
The book will come out on the occasion of an exhibition with the same name at MAAT Museum in Lisbon, curated by Urs Stahel, that also signs a text and the sequencing of the book.
