Lucius Tarquinius Superbus (also called Tarquin the Proud or Tarquin II)
was the last of the seven legendary kings of Rome, son of Lucius Tarquinius
Priscus, and son-in-law of Servius Tullius. Tarquin ruled between 535 BC and
510 BC, in the years immediately before the founding of the Roman Republic.

This is another of my favourite portraits. It is part of the Farm Security
which is interesting to see. "Migrant mother" was also a part of the exhibition
Family of Man. In 1955 Edward Steichen organized that exhibition in New York.
It consisted of 508 photographs from sixty-eight countries. I will return to that
event, but perhaps you remember Steichen from my prior postings. He worked
with Alfred Stieglitz at "291" and with the journal Camera Work.
I am happy to invite you for the exibition of my works and promotion of my book both documenting tradition of Madeiro from small villages in Portuguese mountains, in Beira province. I'd like to thank to co-authors Joao Adolfo Geraldes and Joao Mugeiro, to wonderful people of Proenca a Velha, local authorities and Portuguese Ministry of Culture for giving me such chance.

Stieglitz made over 300 portraits of O´Keeffe during a period of twenty years.
Some of them are true masterpieces, like this one. It´s one of my favourite
portraits. - urbano

Photography helps me to explore and remember people and places.
I am graduated in humanistic science with focus on modern history.
Life on a ship has always fascinated me. It´s a lifestyle that leaves
you isolated at sea for weeks or months. As a final project at a photography
school, I decided to document life on a Finnish cargo ship, mv Mistral.
The ship was carrying a cargo of paper and the trip went from Helsinki,
Fredrikshamn and Rauomo in Finland with destination Santander, Spain.
I am showing some of the pictures that were exhibited at the
Åland Maritime Museum from 11 September -11 October 2006.
