Human existence on the planet leaves unavoidable and irreversible traces. Homo sapiens have been responsible for the evolving change in the world’s evolution and development. Fortunately, since the beginning of recorded history, art has preserved the actions and memories of our ancestors. Many of these iconographic symbols and art forms collectively represent a cosmic vision of human existence.
Based on this broad idea, Antonio thought it would be interesting to define a photographic work whose aim would be to build a collection based on the heritage of contemporary architecture, spaces and urban areas where the intervention of the Human Being left in the past strong marks of his presence and transit.
Globalization is being imposed over society and to Portuguese one in particular, a change that forced to radical shifts not always with positive results. Abandonment of housing once full of Life is a depressing reality that he tries to register here as the remains left behind an Human occupation.
The camera is now a part of his persona and leaves him to concentrate on the aesthetics of an image. He has that freedom to concentrate on the reality behind the facade, capturing the emotions, experiences, and feelings of people in the street.
The great majority of his photographs are black and white; Antonio is convinced that this classic approach is the best way to show reality.The viewer is not distracted by colour, and the eye concentrates on the contrast and lines of a person.
To date he is involved in local collective exhibitions and has been published two or three times in collective books. As he continues to expand on his themes he is looking forward to holding solo exhibitions, hopefully outside of his country of Portugal.
Photography is now a major part of his life. He is passionate, absorbed, committed, dedicated and derives enormous pleasure from making images.
