September 2012 – Portugal (Tras os Montes )
This series was made in a community oven with more than 200 years old. Although in poor condition, the oven is used from time to time for special ocasions.
I grew up in this environment, involved by it and now I see it all disappear. I intend to create a turning point, freeze those moments in time to be able to show and explain them in other time.
On the process of making bread is a deep knowledge and a tradition passed down from generation to generation. In Mourão no one makes bread. This knowledge and tradition are lost in time: they are past, hopefully never forgotten.
To Sra Luz and all his willingness to make this series.
Raised in Tras-os-Montes northern Portugal.
Son of photographer, photography has always been present in his life.
His first camera was a Minolta SRT 101 offered by his father. With the digital age has used and uses several digital cameras. The preference goes to Nikon 7000D with 3 lenses: 18/200, 35 and 70/310.
Never losing sight of the photography degree's in anthropology that defines him as documentary and and humanist photographer.
