"Being and Becoming”
Author: Virgilio Ferreira
Ed .: Pedro Leão Neto
Publisher: SCOPIO (Cityscopio - Cultural Association)

Edited by SCOPIO, this is the first collaboration between the photographer and the publishing platform created in 2010 by Pedro Leão Neto, director of the Cultural Association CITYSCOPIO and Coordinator of the CCRE Research Group, Faculty of Architecture of the University of Porto.
This book, published in the collection, Scopio projects, explores emigration, particularly from Portugal to Northern Europe. It seeks to represent ideas of hybrid identity and concepts of the "Third Space", the "Old and New", and the polarity of living between cultures, languages, landscapes and foreign borders. The author shows a series of photographs that offer perspectives of a new social and geo-cultural context in Portugal and in Europe.
