Abstract

All The Sites (Todos Os Sítios) is an exercise of critical reflection on the contemporary landscape. It brings together a set of photographs, which constitute its body of visual documents, and a written argument that aims to inform the intentions and paradigms of the photographs. This article organizes this reflection through two moments: the first concerns the definition of the term site, based on a perception of the landscape as a cultural construction, an expression coined by WJT Mitchell, and the second, through the work of three photographers – Eugène Atget, Walker Evans and Guido Guidi, seeks to situate the visual paradigms of photographs of All the Sites and the discourse that is inherent to them.
