Worse still, at three minutes to 9, (the shoot was scheduled for 9 o’clock) there was only one gallery owner, and then all of them came. My two sons, Jules and Gédéon, filmed the making of this group portrait, bringing together the most important gallery owners in the world at AIPAD. Here it is.

Neal Slavin, A 40 year chronicle

Photography for me is memory. The instant I press the button I’ve captured that moment as enduring cultural memory. I always say to myself, if my work is respectful of that moment, it will survive the tumultuous ups and downs of the decades and events to come.

Few people outside of Portugal knew the power being wielded on the Iberian Peninsula during the early 1930’s to late 1960’s. This era marks the reign of Antonio de Oliveira Salazar. I lived and photographed the Portuguese people from late 1967 to 1968, when Salazar’s health...
