Representations of Home Open Seminar



What distinguishes one photographer from another? In my opinion, it’s the way each one sees Light, and materialises his/her vision.

This conversation will focus on two bodies of work that have emerged from the connection I have been developing as a photographer with Dance (professional work) and Skateboarding (author project). Perceiving both as creative self-expression languages, materialised through movement, I use photography to interpret the light in which they exist. Learning to see and interpret movement is key to photographing dance. Personal development, relationships, and experiences are the essence of “Beautiful Disasters”, my Skateboarding photographic project.



Bio note

Following in his parents’ footsteps, he chose to study and invest in photography.  He studied dance for some years, and then joined Escola Secundária Artística António Arroio, an arts school, where he specialised in photography. He completed his BA in Photography and Visual Culture at IADE Creative University – Escola Superior de Design, in 2016.
