Empty Houses I have always been bothered by empty and abandoned buildings especially in the heart of the large urban centres. One day, while I was walking in Lisbon, I was drawn by curiosity to enter one of those buildings. The door, which was not properly chained, called me inside. I was already walking up the stairs when I saw an appartment with its main door open. I walked in and found myself surrounded by objects, some of which in their places, as if the house was still inhabited. At the same time however, the deep silence and heavy air did not hide the years of its abandonment. Who lived in that house ?.....How long had it been empty for?...Why had it been left like this? That mysterious environment awoke my interest. I left and returned on another day with a camera with the purpose of capturing in each image both the intimate and the trespassed side of those objects.
