Born in Lisbon, Portugal in 1995, I started photographing with my father who was a photographer, and who organized my first photography exhibition when I was 8. My father's death shortly after shaped my obsession to document life’s transience, and the traces we leave behind. In a way all of my work is a homage to someone or something. I describe myself as an emotional documentarian.
From 2014 until 2018 I studied film at the London College of Communication, University of the Arts London. Having specialized in Cinematography, I fell in love with documentary filmmaking. The last documentary which I shot, Brown Boy Blue, tackled the issue of mental health in the British-Asian community of Derby. Shooting the Behind-The-Scenes of films, is for me, the perfect way to combine photography with filmmaking.
My recent documentary work includes documenting the aftermath of the rockstar Luciano Barbosa’s death, following the lives of Portuguese bullfighters, documenting the work of the artist Janis Dellarte, as well as living with hermits in the North of Portugal.
