• Luísa

    I believe art has always been the best way to express myself.

    From my draw education, I presume, I gained a kind of graphical exploration of the reality. Most of my minimalist photographies restore to things their truth, but I like to go beyond the inherently reality and transfigure it, exploring light as an instrument to metamorphose forms, volume, colors, and create wavy and blurry universes.

    I appreciate the contact with people and I had been traveling abroad when possible. Portrait photography is a way to establish communication even though we are speaking different languages. It has been my favourite type of photography since the first picture I took.

    Lately, I started to use photography to explore self portrait photography to be closer to my genuine sensitivity. It has also been a way of sharing my emotions and the discoveries in the field of perceptions.
