This past September 25th, portuguese photographer Virgílio Ferreira won in Braga (Portugal) the 1st edition of the international photography award «Emergentes DST» prized at 7500€.
The body of work of his portfolio «Uncanny Places», was elected by 20 critics, who admired the ability of the author to challenge our usual visual perspective by making double exposure photographs of actions decurring in very small time frames.
The result are breath takingly beautiful, intricate and fantasy like compositions that go beyond our common knowledge and experience of day to day events.
This is a project the author has been developing since 2007 while on trips around Europe, United States, China and Russia.
