She Looks into Me

“She looks into me” is a series of intimate images that hold a deep reverence for a time when the mystery of life and the mystery of death were closely related.
Conceived in a manner close to theater this book is divided in 3 chapters that explore the idea of human representation and how looking at an image in an active way can evoke more than what is actually depicted in front of you.
To look at something is undeniably very different from looking into something and this is the genesis of this new work that borrows the title from a poem by Surrealist poet Paul Éluard.

Geometries of Silence

“Geometries of Silence” is an ongoing project that first originated from an artist residency that took place in collaboration with Museu da Luz in the summer of 2017 in Aldeia da Luz, a remote village located in the Alentejo region of Portugal. According with the author: “the light of the Alentejo has something of devastating and at the same time is of a profound calm. The images in this series bear this luminous intensity and the palpable roughness of this region.” Along with an exhibition in Museu da Luz a commemorative catalog was published limited to 150 copies.

ZONA

Developed between Tokyo and Lisbon, ZONA is a project that emerged directly from faded memories and notes from a dream-diary. After many sketches the project grew into a photographic documentation of different interior landscapes and situations.
ZONA explores both a mental and physical space - an attempt to represent the unconscious mind and the symbolic nature of archetypes. Always, with a heavy dose of poetry involved.
Nuno's previous work, State of Mind, dealt with people absorbed and lost in their thoughts, in ZONA there's a necessity to delve deeper into this particular arena and see how we think and what are our fundamental fears and emotions.
The narrative of this series follows a single live-performance and is somewhat similar to a dream experience – one feels both familiarity, intimacy and strangeness.
The result is a sensuous, quiet and dark book, delivering images with a memorable cinematic quality.

State of Mind

A photographic series about the individual quality of mysterious strangers. The images were captured over a period of several years traveling in countries such as Japan, Portugal, Hungary, Malaysia, Spain, South Korea, Romania, Russia, Taiwan - and what emerged is a visual narrative on the poetic quality of individuality and what it means to be lost in thoughts. The State of Mind series is about the “thinking moments” and the uncertain atmosphere surrounding the people and places encountered on the way.
