In this first monograph, Nuno Andrade documents the regulars at Floresta do Ginjal, a dance hall in Lisbon where seniors meet. His portraits using flash take us into the intimacy of these lovers, dreamers, loners, and seducers. Through an immersive photography, both spontaneous and sensitive, focusing on details, Nuno Andrade manages to not only document the life of this venue, but also to render its festive and timeless atmosphere as well as to portray its community of regulars that keeps it alive, bringing into light their relationships and distinctive features.
