Born in 1964 in the Paris suburb of a emigrated Portuguese family, I kept this dual culture and dual citizenship. Normal schooling, nor exceptionally bad nor particularly good, led me to a level of higher education in international trade.

After a practice of ten years in the business world, I decided at the age of 33 years, to devote myself fully to live my life as a photographer.

Since 1998, the discovery of this medium that I put my energy on a path strewn with no surprises, many pitfalls and few flowers.

I managed to get some prizes (Special Jury Angers, Investigation…),some prestigious publications (Le Monde2 portfolios, portfolios Le Monde.fr, Portfolio Express Magazine…), some exhibitions and screenings (Visa Image, Singular Images, Scoop …) and a few photographs acquired by major collections (Bibliothèque nationale, Réunion des Monuments Nationaux …).

My relationship with photography is manifested by a deep attachment to the paper, its tangible and nobility of manual labor. The random, non-visible part of this record, is the decisive and indispensable to the success of my work.
