"Postcards. Old postcards, from the early twentieth century, the kind you find in old bookstores. Discolored, desaturated, sepia and even stained postcards. They reflect the charm of what no longer exists or is in a bad condition, but still part of our history. Tomar is a small town in central Portugal full of history. It has one of the most important monuments in a unique architectural style, the Manuelino, a typically Portuguese style, late Gothic. The Convent of Christ with its famous Manuelino window which is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
To recreate the feeling of these antique postcards, I used the combo Diego/Uchitel: the desaturation, the discolored spots, the slightly sepia tone... the perfect setting for these postcards of Tomar."
