Gérard Castello-Lopes (1925–2011) was the representative par excellence of the golden generation of Portuguese photography—which emerged in the 1950s. Alongside the likes of Sena da Silva and Carlos Afonso Dias, Castello-Lopes raised Portuguese photography to the level of the best work being produced at the time. And yet the majority of his works remained unknown until their discovery by the Ether Gallery (Lisbon) in the early 1980s. Unlike his counterparts, Gérard Castello-Lopes returned to photography to superb effect in 1982, and continued to create and exhibit works until 2008.
