Henri Prestes - We Were Born Before The Wind


Setanta Books 2023

Henri Prestes’ first monograph is an exploration of solitude and melancholy in the mysterious landscape of Portugal.

The photographs Prestes took of his hometown, roaming in the dark through small villages, mountains and desolate fields during the colder months of the year, create cinematic and intriguing scenes - there’s something ominous but also calming about the quietest hours captured by Prestes.
