The concept of "printed photography" that guides our project concerns the photographic images that will be select from an extensive archive of publications composed of magazines and propaganda albums with different objectives and creative forms regarding commemorations, voyages, landscapes and monuments as well as ethnographic explorations. Printed photography in Portugal will be conceived as an intersection between modernity and the requirements of politics
