Originally from Vila do Carvalho, Covilha, Portugal, a very small village I have always been close to nature, especially in its wilder aspects, probably because of living on the mountain side. No doubt because of my early intimate contact with nature I have a deep and acute perception of beauty in all its aspects.
Helping my father with his flock of sheep in the rugged and desolate Serra Da Estrela or lending a hand to my grandmother around the farm has given me my inner calm and penetrating vision. I have been living in London now since 2003 and although I miss my mountains and captivating scenery I carry them with me in my head and use what they have taught me to explore this fantastically varied country and to record in photography its matchless beauty.
