Every two years, in the heat of summer, thousands of people from different countries and cultures make their way to the border region of Idanha-a-Nova in Portugal. They come together for the Boom Festival, where they sway with psychedelic sensuality to the sound of Trance music. Photographer Valter Vinagre has accompanied these magical encounters, portraying the place and its temporary inhabitants, their constructions, desires and dreams. This book crystallizes the convulsion of those moments into a possible order, rediscovering gazes and bodies in another space and time. Texts by António Guerreiro and Joaquim Moreno decode the images and hermetic organization of the book, offering threads for readers to follow as they lose and find themselves again in the labyrinths of the imagination.
