It is so wonderful to see the images from the opening event of the MIRA Mobile Prize 2015, of which I was very proudly a Jury member. Manuela Matos Monteiro put on the most wonderful show, this is what she had to say;
“The day was gorgeous, the exhibition fantastic and a lot of public attend to our exhibition. It was a great idea to project the 200 photo (50 shortlisted+150) because there is so great works worthy to be seen. Some mobile photographers from UK and Spain came to participate and that was really nice. The responsible of Culture in Porto was very proud with the exhibition. We thank again and again to our jury and to all candidates. The event was great because we got splendid photographies and we feel very proud!”
We have attached some images from the opening event below. The exhibition will run until 13 June 2015, so if possible, please try to visit.
