The title of this book refers to the uniquely Portuguese term “saudade” which has been described as “a vague and constant desire for something that does not and probably cannot exist, for something other than the present, a turning towards the past or towards the future; not an active discontent or poignant sadness but an indolent dreaming wistfulness.
The photographs in this book are the result of an artist residency that American photographer Nick Tauro Jr. completed in Portugal.
He believes his predisposition for reveling in melancholy and nostalgia created the mental space for him to make these pictures.
