I am a curious and sensitive soul.
I shoot because I miss moments, I miss people, I miss places, I miss situations. In portuguese, we have a word for that, which has no translation to english: "saudade". I photograph because I feel "saudade", cause I want to keep my impressions in a place where I can reach them when I miss them. And how I miss everything! Yet photography is my antidote to those feelings. Every single piece of work that I produce, is totally related to me in the most varied sentimental ways. Definitely my family, my ancestors, my history, my roots are the reasons that triggers me the most. I am very sensitive to emotions and that connects me to other people's feelings as well.
