The camera as an extension of the gaze. Light, composition and balance. People and situations in everyday life. “Ex-Patriate” is a way out of his comfort zone: The Fatherland. It is the way to take advantage of the opportunity to observe what is commonplace in another way. The new one that triggers curiosity.
Artur Carvalho, born in Lisbon, amateur photographer and graduate in Product Design in London, Central Saint Martin’s College of Art & Design. He left Portugal to study in England, but it was in Angola that he started working in 2007. Advertising and visual culture contaminate his passion for photography. On the other hand, photography is part of his work as creative director of several brands. He has received several awards for his photos, such as National Geographic’s international website Your Shot. Photography is a universal language; it does not need a homeland or a translation. It has no borders. Only Art.
