Currently living and working in São Vicente, Cabo Verde.
He studied Photography at Ar.Co, in Lisbon, and completed postgraduate studies in Photography and Contemporary Art (IPA/Atelier de Lisboa).
He has been working both in photography and installation, and landscape has been the primary backdrop for his artistic research. His artistic practice is informed by an understanding of the landscape as a space of cultural embodiment, a place where natural, physical and symbolic dimensions interact and colide. When approaching the landscape, his interest transcends the natural and physical aspects but rather considers the accumulation of traces left behind as signs of political and socio-ecological significance. He is therefore more concerned about constructing an image and inscribing a speculative meaning in his photographs than recording the surface of things.
He has been involved in several artistic and educational projects as a photographer, trainer, curator and founding member of AOJE, an organization dedicated to photography. He has been working as an educator for several years and collaborates at Koiástudio design studio.
