About the Book
Childhood revisited photography project was born from a personal need to confront the visual memories of a grown up man, an artist, with the reality and how this reality he had left behind several years ago looks like today. It’s an attempt to give a visual form to something very personal and clearly not material; to transform the deep psychological and emotional value of those places into artistic work of a photographer.
Renato Silva was born in Aveiro, Portugal in 1980. In 2010, as a photographer he came back to the places that were imprinted in his memory – the beach, the swimming pool, the church, the school; all of them had importance in Silva’s early years leaving in his mind a mental and visual trace.
