After an initial period in fashion, the Artist is focused in creative Photography. His main interest is the substance and layers of human personality, the role of photography and images in modern life. Explores the thin line between fictional vs documentary, how photography is the perfect technology to merge real and imaginary.Works with stage artists, sharing with them the plasticity of perception.
The Artist Concepts
“Almost you” is inspired in Chet Baker’s version of the song “Almost Blue”. Memories fuse with present. Past shapes perception. Real and imaginary together, documenting a world blurred in time, a thin line between real and biased perception. Life sometimes lived, sometimes rehearsed, others imagined.
"Stage Life, Violent Nature" is a tribute to those who seek to deconstruct their inner personality, exposing themselves, seeking to wake up from the illusion of senses.
"Lisboa Lisboa", is a photographic series depicting loneliness both as a human feeling and as a physical characteristic imprinted in spaces in the city of Lisbon. We question form as being a physical reality, or a perception constructed by an emotional balance based on a relationship with the other, the observer.
"We", is a fictional project. A photographic series, a story, a point of view of a city of infinite meanings. Multiple faces, different spaces, a single generation.
