PINNK Diaries : Tales of Lisbon

Tales of Lisbon

Spanish philologist and photographer Seigar presents us a snapshot of Lisbon, told through his obsessions with reflections, saturated colours, curious finds and religious iconography.

Part of his ongoing body of work Tales of Cities, Tales of Lisbon was inspired by Madonna’s 2020 Madame X tour to Portugal, his “photographic tribute to the biggest pop icon ever”

This street photography series was taken during my visit to the Madame X Tour in January 2020, and it represents my tribute to the biggest pop icon ever.

Madonna’s last album was inspired by the Portuguese traditional sounds, but also Latin and African rhythms. Lisbon is the best city in the world to understand the theatre concerts she was performing as Madame X. She did it again! It was pure emotion.

I understand photography as a personal diary of my experiences in life. I think it’s also difficult for me not to analyse what I see in my images, maybe because as a Philologist, and also as a critic for some magazines about pop culture, and about other photographers, I just tend to find meanings, connections, and relations in the finds that I capture with my camera.

Communication plays an important role in everything that I create. I’m into clear and direct messages. Tales of Lisbon tries to portray from a pop perspective my guess about why Madonna fell in love with this city and its culture. I wanted to fantasize about the reasons that made her compose her first, and probably best world music record.

A good song to visualise this set could be Extreme Occident, it will give you the perfect hint to know Madame X.
