This new edition celebrates the 50th anniversary of the original one. It also includes a supplement with a new introduction by Gerry Badger and a full transcription into english of the book’s index, where the authors explain in detail the making of each image. ‘Lisboa, Cidade Triste e Alegre’ is a simphony about Lisbon of the fifties, showing the city in its different aspects. The photos are very modern, grainy, taken in a fast way, choosing spontaneity and instinct to artifact and composition. According to Martin Parr and Gerry Badger, who included thisbook in their The Photobook: A History, vol.1, “Lisboa is particularly notable forusing many of the book-making ideas developed by William Klein, and Dutch photographers like Ed van der Elsken and Joan van der Keuken, and has a vibrant, cinematic feeling”. Long out of print, this new edition follows exactly the first edition.
