initiated 10 years by Sabrina Pestana, “She will stay"Represents a single record of his relationship with Mr.. Zico, as it was called José Nicolau Pestana. “The photos were made every day, before the sun sets, in my little room in the apartment where he lived with my grandparents, until day 26 March 2009, when Grandpa suffered a massive heart attack at 18:00. More than 600 negative, laughs, conversations, hugs and confessions. Daily photos were bathed by feelings of contempt and Grandpa gratitude to the camera. I used the 'one-eyed three feet' - debauched way in which Grandpa was talking to the camera – to keep me close to him and to keep him increasingly live. I recorded it in all possible ways: photo, calligraphy, drawing, death mask and, especially, through my heart”, says a photographer.
Besides images, “She will stay"Also consists of short texts handwritten by the artist's grandfather. “I Slept. She entered the room, plucked me from the bed, put me on the bench the whole day, I turned my neck, I set the focus and returned me to the bed”, Sr reveals. Zico among the portraits of his granddaughter. About title, Sabrina Pestana says: “'She will stay'. The camera. My God and my Glory. Old age. wrinkles. The pictures. The memory. nostalgia. The camera was, I stayed, They were the photos and the old Zico remains in the absence that makes the images and the recorded”.
Somehow, the images created perpetuate the history of Sr. Zico. “'She'll be' is your preparation for eternity and my preparation for his absence. In this book we reveal. We opened the door of that room and allow other eyes traverse the details, the affection, the memory stuck in a body full of imperfections and an immense love and eternal grandfather and granddaughter”, concludes Sabrina Pestana.
