Photographer: Pedro Ribeiro Simões
Capture Date: March 30, 2015
Location: Lisbon, Portugal
About: The famed Portuguese poet and writer, Fernando Pessoa (1888–1935) , was respected not only for the quality and breadth of his work, but for the work of his 75 alter egos. Rather than call them pseudonyms, because he didn’t feel it captured their true independent intellectual life, he called them heteronyms. These imaginary figures sometimes held unpopular or extreme views, and would often interact with one another.
