"Matança do Porco", one of the oldest portuguese traditions. A social affair where family and friendly neighbors gather, slaughter a pig and share the meat within the community to be consume the following year. A flawless and balanced cycle, where a piglet takes its place for the next gathering. There is no story about this images but that, after being invited to this feast, and feeling a bit disturbed, somehow I tried to keep myself busy using my camera. Slowly, I became comfortable... In the end, my own detachment had taken me to a strange a place. It is said that we, humans, have a lot in common with pigs.
