Stay close to anything that makes you glad you are alive.
I believe that you get to know a country better when you get close enough and take the time to meet the people . That is why my main focus as a photographer has always been people, some of whom I have met and have a story to tell, others that I captured on the street.
Coming from Portugal and growing up in a family of eight in a neighborhood where children felt safe and still played together in the streets, made me curious and outgoing.
My adventurous spirit to explore new lands also served me well when it was time for me to leave. I’ve always been grateful for all the different cultures I have gotten to know and for the extraordinary people I met on the way.
My exhibitions so far were the result of those encounters. I always push myself to find that special moment that shows our true essence.
