‘Silence’ explores contemporary urban emotions like loneliness and anonymity.
The book evolves in a constant dialogue between private and public situations.

José Pedro Cortes’s work in this book deals with the struggle of accessing human presence in the contemporary city – a silent and layered presence hidden behind the surface of things or people; that always seems distant to the viewer. These ideas of blockade and intimacy are played together in a book structure that borrows ideas from film or literature.
