Born in Lisbon, Portugal in 1995, I started photographing with my father who was a documentary photographer, and who organized my first exhibition when I was 8. My father's death shortly after shaped my obsession to document life. My work explores themes such as life’s transience, death and the traces we leave behind. My latest project is about the aftermath of the rockstar Luciano Barbosa’s death. 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.
Based in Lisbon & London. Open for commissions and collaborations.
