Diogo Simões, A Zona
A Zona / Diogo Simões
Pierre von Kleist Editions

A Zona is Diogo Simões’s first book. Twelve years in the making, it marks the arrival of a major force in Portuguese photography.

All the photos were done in Margem Sul, Tagus river south bank, opposite Lisbon. A humanistic, poetic, politically engaged hallucinatory record of a territory with a strong industrial and postcolonial past. A beautiful land with mountains, white sanded beaches, dolphins and ghettos.

Simões is a son of the land. This is his territory. A Zona makes justice to Margem Sul, in all its Prehistoric, Roman, Muslim glory. Indeed, a Holy Land.

A Zona was the winner of the 1st edition of the Arte deste Século Association Book Prize and is a co-edition between this Association and Pierre von Kleist Editions.
