Photography – Mulheres Portuguesas Anos 50

Recentemente, por ocasião do Dia Internacional da Mulher, deparei-me com fotos de mulheres portuguesas, tiradas nos anos 50 pelo fotógrafo francês Jean Dieuzaide (1921 – 2003). Retratadas no seu quotidiano, nas lides do campo e do mar, com os filhos, solitárias ou em grupo, estas mulheres deixam-nos o testemunho de um tempo passado que, muito embora desaparecido, não é assim tão longínquo.

As crianças e jovens que ali aparecem são talvez da idade da minha mãe e, contudo, trinta anos passados Portugal parecia ter mudado radicalmente. Estas fotos belíssimas são, simultaneamente, documentos históricos, etnográficos e exemplos de enorme sensibilidade artística que não posso deixar de partilhar com os leitores do Girls.

Portuguese Women from the 1950’s

Recently, on the occasion of International Women’s Day, I came across some photos of Portuguese women, taken in the 50s by French photographer Jean Dieuzaide (1921-2003). Depicted in their daily lives, labors in the countryside and the sea, with children, single or in groups, these women let the testimony of a past time, though gone, is not that far.

Children and young girls who appear there are perhaps the age of my mother and yet, thirty years after Portugal seemed already to have changed radically. These beautiful photos are both historical  and ethnographic documents, and examples of great artistic sensibility that I have to share with the readers of Girls.
