The book delivered at the Madeira Electricity Museum was the second volume of the UPP's 30th anniversary celebrations. This new 220-page book features 29 black and white projects by international UPP artists, including photography and painting.

“This new volume that we call“ United Photo Press 30 Years Of Creative Projects In Black & White ”, in addition to celebrating 30 years of the UPP, also intends to celebrate the ever present black and white photography in the lives of all of us throughout these decades , because it made perfect sense to have copies for consultation at the Museu da Electricidade, which is also an international reference for many international institutions, in addition to being a UPP partner in the international exhibitions that take place in Madeira ”. Refers the president of the UPP, Carlos Alves de Sousa.

The book delivered at the Madeira Electricity Museum has the participation of two photographers native to the island, João Sá e Sousa and Rod Costa, who exhibited their work together with members from other countries at the Museum, in the context of the 30 years of the UPP last October 2020.

The UPP highlights the project presented by the photographer João Sá e Sousa in the presentation at the exhibition and in the UPP book on "Podengo de Porto Santo" due to the need to register the breed, otherwise its destiny will be extinction, says the photographer who also is the breeder of these animals.

The book will be released live if pandemic conditions permit around the world, starting in April in the city of Setúbal in Portugal, going to Madeira Island, Brazil in Curitiba and Piauí, Russia in the city of Moscow, Germany in the city of Munich and others will be programmed according to the pace of the global pandemic that affects the entire world.
