It is a visual journey, or rather a collection of journeys from Lagos to the West coast. It is an atempt to feel more and enjoy the uniqueness, the authenticity and the wealth of this part of Algarve.
Those have been journeys were I forgot the time, I was just there in the moment … stroked by the winds, burned by the strong sun, seduced by the smells, enticed by the vastness of the ocean…with the feeling for being part of something bigger than my brain can imagine. Prolific moments yet moments of emptiness… moments that feel like magic.
The photographs are taken with an old analog camera as an atempt to capture more, to feel more and to escape the imediacy the of digital screens.
Sitting on a beach and contemplating the views, walking on the shores, feeling the hot sand and suddenly the cold wave of water, forgetting everything and suddenly realizing that I understand a new language. As though the waves, the seagulls, the rocks and the wind were telling me their tales and secrets.
