When I was thirteen I missed my targets at school. For that reason I spent the summer helping in a photography shop in the center of Lisbon. The pay was very low but, in turn, I discovered that photos could be a lot of fun.
Later on, during the war in Africa, I bought the camera I have been using all my life, for 33 years, a Pentax Spotmatic. I started developping my own pictures at home too.
I like all types of pictures but I must confess that I prefer "situations", unprepared shots socially revealing. I dont use tripod, flash or filters. I do mainly slides and I scan them with a MINOLTA Dimage F-2800.
I took pictures in many parts of the world. Recovering, keeping and showing those works is a way of sharing the joy of beeing alive.
