I live in Lisbon, Portugal.
I have PhD in Arts from Faculdade de Belas Artes de Lisboa, a Bachelor Degree in History and a Master Degree in Fine Arts (Theory of Arts – Photography) from Faculdade de Belas Artes de Lisboa.
My work as a photographer is in relation with my studies in art and photography theory. Im working in history of nineteenth century photography, mainly in the creative process of early photographers and in body representation in portuguese photography.
My photographic work is about body representation in the tradition of pictorial arts and photographic art, and women representation.
Over the last two years, I have spent a lot of time covering the crisis in Portugal. It is difficult to photograph because there is nothing special happening on the streets; it is a crisis that is happening behind closed doors. As photographers, our work must be subtle and we must always be attentive to looks, gestures or actions that allow us to guess the situation of the protagonists in our pictures.
