These images are part of an ongoing project, the result of my interest in strange and, at the same time, familiar spaces. They are the result of an urban experience, the experience of Porto, the city where I was born and where I live.
+ + +INES d'OREY was born in the northern Portuguese city of Porto. She was educated at the London College of Printing and won the FNAC Award for Talents in Photography in 2007. Her ongoing project "Porto Interior" comprises a series of large-format photographs of public places in Porto. Using a series of photographic manipulations, d'Orey alters the urban motifs to impose the atmosphere she finds appropriate. Her aim is to capture the spirit of the place and intensify it so that it seems to have origin in another world. "They become images of mysterious transit zones, imbued with a melancholy beauty." Ines d'Orey was one of 100 photographers invited to participate in Review Santa Fe 2009. Her website.
