Alexandre Manuel

Country: Portugal 🇵🇹

Travel and photography has always been indisossociable for Alexandre and his travels quickly became a school and a training camp. After a Phd in language science and a few years to teach in this field, he decide to turn professional his passion to photography. During years of research, he analyse the structure of the dramatization logged into the TV news. A meticulous theorisation of the language of emotions inside dramatic events lunch Alexandre far deep in the world of pathos and dysphoria. that is the reason why the photographer chose to dedicate his life recording the silent aesthetic of our beautiful world. That is the reason why Alexandre doesn't take souvenir pictures but timeless and almost pure natural scenery instead. In facts Alexandre is fascinated by the temporality of photography, which is very brief in the act of shooting but strangely flexible once it observed. All his work is all about observation and following him, his sceneries try to be independents from our presence, even if sometimes some silhouettes, wrecks or structure witness our inevitable reliance. He is also passioned of Art, specially Land Art and Abstract paintings.
Alexandre travel across the world to record the natural landscapes. His work can be seen in galleries as he made several solo and group exhibition in differents countries.
