This photographic documentary was made because I see in it a good subject matter and it is typical Portuguese work, done with the force of people's arms where the machines have not yet found a place because of the complexity and randomness of the extraction.
I hope it translates the strength and skill of cork men.
In the present, cork is in the peak areas of innovative design and eco-design. It is an ecological, recyclable and biodegradable material looked for many different applications. With this photographic documentary I intend to participate in the construction of the Portuguese immaterial heritage.
We must look into our future with the awareness of our present and past. Everything that is modern has a path, a story: a soul.
