Making bread in a centenary oven

Jorge Sarmento | Portugal

The entrance of the oven, a door with many years and many stories to tell...

September 2012 – Portugal (Tras os Montes )
This series was made in a community oven with more than 200 years old. Although in poor condition, the oven is used from time to time for special ocasions.

I grew up in this environment, involved by it and now I see it all disappear. I intend to create a turning point, freeze those moments in time to be able to show and explain them in other time.


On the process of making bread is a deep knowledge and a tradition passed down from generation to generation. In Mourão no one makes bread. This knowledge and tradition are lost in time: they are past, hopefully never forgotten.

Jorge Sarmento

 To Sra Luz and all his willingness to make this series.
