Killing of The Pig/A Matança do Porco

A few day ago, I published a photo-reportage about the Killing of The Pig, in a portuguese magazine called A23. The photographs are really strong and some people may find them disturbing. 

I grow up watching my family doing this kind of stuff, like they did with their parents, and for families that lived in the middle of the mountains, back in the 40/50's, isolated from the rest of the world, this was the only way to survive and provide food for the winter time for the whole family.

The text it's in portuguese but you can always watch the video.
