Isolated Elements

"when working i walk fast, very fast, and i become part of the light and movement and elements all around me - it's an almost electric feeling that lasts only a short while"

collective exhibitions
Various > Monsaraz Vila Presépio

"As night falls over the lone and silent hill, and all the figures are lit in their path uphill, a mystic and magic sensation takes us onto another dimension, as if we were transported to a time that has never been. Get closer to the big figures and you'll feel a strange lilliputian sensation of being an intruder from another age"

individual exhibitions
Stefan Rohner > last tourists

"Ibiza, Octubre 2003"

João Carvalho Pina > Maré negra na Galiza

"17 images that represent Galiza sufering the consequences of the Prestige sinking. Photographies taken between the 1st and the 4th of December 2002."

Sofia Quintas > Alfama é fácil de Amar

"This is Alfama, a neighbourhood we can call labyrinthine, confuse, agglomerated, coloured, mazy, twisted, full of branches of little streets, arches, inner yards, alleys, stairways and planes, entrances and yards."
