Wedding DJ

10 Aug 2012 / 0 Comments / in Blog Post

A while ago, I shot the wedding of a great friend of mine in the Alentejo, in Portugal. The setting was amazing, in the middle of nature, on an old farm he renovated to be completely self-sufficient in terms of water and energy. The DJ present also had to do whatever he could with the […]

While we were waiting for the first game of Portugal in the 2012 European championships to start, a Spanish dancer and artist walked by with a big trolley. Thinking she was a tourist looking for a place to have a coffee or a beer, I pointed out the only empty chair of the terrace at […]

  Temperatures are going up everywhere in the Northern hemisphere, and it’s goodbye winter and hello summer before we know it. I was looking through some work of the last months and I remembered a series of photos I took on a family walk after arriving in Belgium from Angola early November. Even though it […]

I took this photo at the Kalandula falls, not too far from the city of Malange, in the center of Angola. What you see is part of, and probably to some extent the result of, a liquid picknick. I’d been told that groups of people go there to enjoy the beauty of Africa’s third (or […]

I found these two while I was roaming the streets of Huambo, in the middle of Angola. This area suffered greatly during the war, and the episodes people have been telling me are too horrible for words. The war ended in 2002, with the death of Unita leader Jonas Savimbi. These two guys probably never […]

  I’m back in Luanda, organizing for a journey across the country. Yesterday night, I was downtown at a the Zanzibar, for an expat’s farewell party, and I say this guy. He was wearing a bow tie and jacket and all, but finished it all off tropically with a pair of bermuda shorts and flip […]

Room with a view

Looking out or looking in? A look outside, or is it a peak inside? Sharing a moment with an imaginative or a real person? I took this picture at a friend’s place while I was in Brussels, and kind of forgot about it, until I was selecting pictures for the Plaisirs Partagés collective exhibition. As […]


This week I made a selection of photographs made in Belgium for a collective exhibition in March, based on the theme “shared pleasures” and I came across this old favorite of mine. I shot this a couple of years ago at my youngest sister’s wedding. My then still future brother in law was enjoying a […]

This is the ferry boat across the Tagus river. It takes thousands of people into Lisbon every morning and back out again in the evening to Almada, or as we jokingly say amongst friends: Morocco. The weekend edition, as seen here, is less cramped, and there’s a couple of very nice restaurants on the other […]


I spotted this mural last month while I was in Água de Madeiros. In the middle of the rubble of a construction site (probably adding yet another extension to an existing building). It’s a sign of questionable taste you see very often around the countryside. Not that it’s something exclusive to Portugal. I guess that […]
