Postcards from the West Coast of Europe is a project I made alongside with Vitor Campinho AKA Happy Jack Studio.
It is a series of six illustrated postcards about the city of Porto born out of spite due to a campaign directed by Nick Knight called 
Portraits from the West Coast of Europe by Nick Knight, that basically sold the idea that Portugal was nothing more that beaches and a couple of celebrities. It was our firm belief at that time (and it still is) that Portugal’s identity goes beyond football, sunny weather and sandy beaches. And so, we set out to find  the “real” Portugal,  the everyday Portugal. We photographed several locations and then, we designed postcard to portray them in all its monumentality.
