Amavel Vitorino

A photography I took while visiting the Museum of Aljude: Resistance and Freedom in Lisbon last week. A graphic composition of Amavel Vitorino, a shoemaker from Mora, Portugal, made with the faces of political prisoners. Vitorino was arrested in December 1940 for making “unpleasant comments on the current political situation of the country and its leaders.”
