Porto is a place of memories. I've got some roots here. It's a place I like it, a place where I always return. I have been photographing the city, family, friends and acquaintances. I take pictures of them, as far as we meet. Somehow, they all live in Porto.

I come across places that have an affective effecte on me. I captured them with my camera. They reflect what I feel, how I feel, what I am and where I'm going.  And I’ve been wandering a lot in the city. Porto, the city of wandering, of passions and of life meaning.  I get lost in the city that I know and in the city that I keep discovering. I keep re-encounter old friends and acquaintances and people I know, I meet knew people. Recently I’ve stopped seeing the city as a whole. I began to see it as fragments, fragments of my identity, of how I feel.  I am part of Porto, as much as I am part of any city.

The journey, the room, the two in bed, the strong look of closeness, the face behind the buildings, the frendship and unconditional love, the dog, the chindren of others, hers and mine, the wings of the Angel, she's asleep, I look in the mirror, a hug, a touch on the hand, the trees, the palm trees, marks on the body and on the rock, the memories of home...
