I have known Paul for some years. We have travelled together several times. I don´t like to drive and he doesn´t like technology. When he was younger he took many photographs. Nowadays, he rarely photographs but he likes to be photographed. In the beginning of the year, I asked Paul to do a project about his body and intimate life. He could never have imagined to be naked in front of a camera. Later, he confessed that he was enjoying it.
This is an ongoing project. Paul is in his 70´s. I felt interested in exploring body ageing, memory and the relationship of the human being/individuals with photography.
In the last few years, I´ve been interested in creating images and I have participated in some collective exhibitions. In 2015, having decided I wanted to improve my photographic skills, I started studying photography. Since October 2018, I am attending the Artistic Photography Master at IPCI. Recently, I was awarded the Honourable Mention at the FNAC Portugal New Talent Photography.
