“Em Águas de Bacalhau” is the new photo project by Vasco Pinhol and will be exhibited from this Thursday, May 20th and until July 16th in the Taguspark in Oeiras.

This seven-year project summarizes the process of traditional fishing for the popular Norwegian cod in 16 photographs. What distinguishes Vasco Pinhol’s production is that many of the photographs were taken in water.

Although Norwegian cod is one of the most popular fish in Portugal, few know the harvesting process behind this famous animal.

The exhibition offers a multimedia aspect in which each photo is explained in detail. “In Águas de Bacalhau” can be visited from Monday to Saturday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. in the Taguspark.
