14 kms south from Lisboa, where I live, is Costa da Caparica.
During the last years I often found myself returning to this magnetic place.

This work was shown in four Museums in 2012 - Deichtorhallen in Hamburg, Gulbenkian Foundation in Paris, Fondazione Banca del Monte in Lucca, and the Nobel Peace Center in Oslo.
