THE PARK IN MACRO II
from 19 MAR 2019 to 31 AUG 2019
Visiting Serralves Park, we are naturally confronted with the mastery and beauty of its design, its historical signi?cance, the diversity of its colours, aromas, forms and textures, its fauna and ?ora. However, there is much more to admire beyond what can be naturally observed with the naked eye; that is what the exhibition ‘The Park in Macro II’ and this associated publication will allow us to rediscover. Macrophotography, whose purpose is to capture the details of minute objects or living beings often invisible to the naked eye, is the technique used in these large format images. The Park’s fauna and ?ora stand out from a vast, barely explored universe to cause admiration and awe for this other hidden world of mystery and fascination that also exists all around us. With these photographs, Serralves Park, a classi?ed National Monument since 2012, and recognized by Phaidon’s The Gardener’s Garden as one of the 250 most remarkable gardens in the world, gives visitors an additional reason for a prolonged enjoyment of its singular spaces.
