Photobook by Nica Paixão
Published by Barba ao Vento
For generations, it touched the lives of countless workers and their families. A staple in the local region and in the merchant navy. Nica Paixão revisited its charismatic shipyard and offices in 2009, over a decade after her first day at work there. LISNAVE has a special place, her memory, in between memories of work and of abandonment. The glory of one of the biggest shipyards in Portugal and its decline at the turn of the millennium.
In a rare foray into colour, Nica Paixão records the imposing enclosure through oxidation and abandonment, in order to find what has deeply marked her for more than two decades.
