"Becoming is a concept derived from philosophy which considers change in itself as process and transition from a state to another. It refers to the transformation and changes in one's way of being. Change is inevitable and an essential part of the world."

This project by Virgílio Ferreira is about emigration, in particular from Portugal to northern Europe. Hybrid identity, the concepts of the third space and the Old and the New, the polarity of living in-between cultures, languages and borderlines are explored in the author's photographs, which are an insight to this new “socio-and-geo-cultural” context in Portugal and Europe. +
