Photography | Portuguese Women from the 50's

Photo by Jean Dieuzaide - Portugal, 1950's



For the occasion of International Women’s Day, I want to share with you some photos of Portuguese women, taken in the 50s by French photographer Jean Dieuzaide (1921-2003). Depicted in their daily lives, labors in the countryside and the sea, with children, single or in groups, these women let the testimony of a time, that although is gone, is not that far.

Children and young girls who appear there are perhaps the age of my mother and yet, thirty years after Portugal seemed already to have changed radically. These beautiful photos are both historical  and ethnographic documents, and examples of great artistic sensibility that I'm glad to share with you.
