A unique venue for S&I Media’20: the 19th Century Studio-House of Carlos Relvas

casa relvas 2

The Studio-House of Carlos Relvas was conceived in 1873 as a temple dedicated to the art of photography and is the only of its kind worldwide. It’s a two-storey house with an iron and glass structure, fully restored in 2003 and in 2018, that includes a large Victorian photographic studio, labs, elegant lobbies and exhibition rooms, refined studio furniture and expensive 19th Century cameras. Carlos Relvas was a pioneer in the Portuguese photography and produced amazing collodion stereographs in the 1860’s. We are proud to have the last day of our conference in this historical studio!

A Dag Studio at S&I Media 2020

A nineteenth-century inspired daguerreotype studio will be installed at the conference venue, Universidade Lusófona.

Thanks to LUPA – Luís Pavão Lda. (, you will rediscover one of the first techniques of photography and take the result back home with you.

This unique experience will take around 2 hours, during which you will be invited to participate in the several stages of the process: polishing the brass plate, preparing a pose with clothing and props of your choice, exposure of the plate to iodine vapors to create a light-sensitive surface, image development, fixation and gilding, and finally the packaging of the plate in a case specifically designed for this event.
