Born in Lisbon, Portugal. I became a gastroenterologist and from 1983 lived in the city of Caldas da Rainha. However in retirement I began making photographs in public places. Since 2016 I have been fascinated to discover the magic of light in the urban kaleidoscope mainly when fragments of colors emerge between deep shadows. As a consequence I published a photobook (launched 2020) with an Essay by David Gibson.
