I was born in Lisbon, 1981. With an early passage in photography at Ar.Co (art and visual communication centre, Lisbon), I later graduated with a MA Geography degree (University of Dundee) on migration fluxes; while attending on a regular basis the darkroom at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Arts & Design. Along with people movements, I developed interest in issues on contemporary nationalisms, identity and ethnicity. From 2005 onwards I spent big spans of time out of the country while living abroad in Scotland, Catalonia and long-term travelling; I’m currently based in the southwest of Portugal.
To translate environmental, emotional, cultural and socioeconomic landscapes is my motivation behind the photographic process. I find sense in Sophia de Mello Breyner words:
“He who sees the awesome splendour of the world is logically led to see the astonishing suffering of the world. He who sees the phenomenon wants to see the whole phenomenon.”
