The inaugurating event of the Foto Rio 2005, this photographic exhibition presents more than 180 photographs from cameras taken during the late 19th century to the 20th century. The different time periods, themes and applications reflect the historical, cultural and utilitarian importance of the photographic image as visual instrument in the preservation of memory and as magic constructors of fantasy. The exhibition is divided in sections: "Disquiet Look" from the collection of the Centro PortuguÍs de Fotografia (first time it is presented outside Portugal), "Foreign Portraits," belonging to the Thereza Christina Maria Collection held in the Biblioteca Nacional de Rio de Janeiro and "Portraits of Stars" that belongs to the Maison Europeenne de la Photographie in Paris. ENGLISH, FRENCH, SPANISH AND PORTUGUESE TEXT.
