Pedro Letria
Pedro Letria is a Portuguese artist whose work reflects upon issues of displacement and belonging. His use of photography and text are a reflection on how image and language function alone, and once combined, establish an alternate discourse. Mirroring his own multi-cultural trajectory, his photographs have been widely published and Pedro Letria is the author of 7 monographs, including Mármore, from 2007 and The Club, from 2014. His work has been exhibited in venues such as the Centro Cultural de Belém, Portugal; Fundació Foto Colectanea, in Barcelona, Spain; Parc de La Villette, Paris, France; Galeria Olido in São Paulo, Brazil, and the Kunstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin, Germany. His work is part of European public and private collections, such as the Portuguese Center of Photography, CAV, in Portugal and the BES Art Collection. With a B.F.A. from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Pedro Letria is a Fulbright scholar and a RISD M.F.A. Photography graduate. He has taught at Escola Superior de Arte e Design, in Caldas da Rainha, Portugal, since 2000.
