Through photography, Tiago da Cunha Ferreira brings attention to the human condition in both his exhibitions and books. He established himself as a photographer in 2006 through his first book “Ukama Wangu - Family of Mine". This volume, which holds a written introduction by Mia Couto and is edited by Assírio and Alvim, consists of black and white photographs portraying the Tivane, a Mozambican family.
In 2011, in collaboration with the author Jacinto Lucas Pires, he published “Vamos” ("Let ́s go”) which was commissioned by both the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation and the Academy Ubuntu.
Tiago is currently focused on sharing the “Fotografias da Guiné-Bissau” (" Photos of Guinea-Bissau ") book, which portrays part of the reality of the country and its people.
Tiago da Cunha Ferreira believes in the visual literacy potential that Photography provides and has been working on a project for the social integration of children and young people.
He is based Lisbon, Portugal since 1987.
