Custodio’s Azulejos provides glimpses into the
life of the labourer through Portuguese ceramic
tile murals. In his photographs printed onto
tiles, he assumes the roles of those who laboured
– not only for survival, but for the love of
tending a garden and the ensuing sense of pride.
This work is a means for him to piece together the
tales passed down by his ancestors, and in
re-enacting these moments, he adopts and
perpetuates that history.
