This photograph can be your action-movie of tonight: a man in a tramcar points a gun at the other passengers: a whole crowd held at gunpoint.
Between these people there are so many reactions; so many ways the story could unfold; I cannot help but think of all these people involved. Each with their own lives, as full and complex as mine, getting together to act out this scene. Each of them acting out a violent and traumatic experience, reflecting on how they would react; making us think of how we would hold ourselves. Imagining how the story will unfold.

“Agora, vais tomar o elétrico para casa, muito sossegada (….) . Aí vem um carro mesmo a propósito para vocês. Livre delas, atravessei a placa deserta do Rossio, cujo empedrado preto e branco ondulava a perder de vista sob a luz morna” Francisco Costa “Cárcere Invisível” Fotografia Arquivo Municipal de Lisboa, Rossio #lisboa
