Steve Dean Mendes was born and raised in a small town in the south of Portugal and he is currently based in Belgium, Aalst.
Through his photography he is not only expressing his vision of the world but also he uses his powerful images for healing.
He creates a deep emotional connection with his models and offers them a voice and power to embrace themselves, to heal while guiding them towards self-acceptance.
Together with publishing house Stockmans Art Books and book designer Tina De Souter, Steve published in 2021 his first art book
‘Emotions In Between Emotions’.
