Hi, I am a Madeira Island-born Portuguese photographer and director. My blank slate begins with a functional level of emotion, logic, minimalism, and curiosity; I view these to be the building blocks of my life and creative process.
Led by curiosity, I often create or document ambiguous but frameable non-linear narratives about uncomfortable topics that, in the end, pose a new set of questions, keeping alive the mystery surrounding us, our universe and what is fundamental or emergent.
My work is driven by the belief that if answers are to be found, they will come from the realm of non-locality through the sum of all relatable questions. However, even if the perfect answer is like the speed of light, exponentially harder to come close to, and impossible to achieve, nothing will give me more pleasure than to keep trying.
