This is a series of redefined photos, in still-life with small adjustments from the RAW file. It started with an analysis of plastic, I associated new ways of "mitigating" this problem (perhaps creating others) and extended it to more problems as well, generalized consumption of natural resources, climate change, but also the extinction of species, new energy sources and their impacts. The current war in Ukraine, and other world conflicts, from the east to Africa, to the idea of resorting to nuclear weapons. The world today is different and a much more different perspective!! Unfortunately!

My name is Antonio Bernardino Martins Coelho, I am from a small village in the north of Portugal, where I live. I am 39 years old, married and father of two girls. I work as an electrical engineer. A taste for painting was evident in me early on, but it was only in 2010 after a trip to Cuba that I became interested in photography, having captured a lot of images. However, having a small digital camera, I started to acquire analog equipment and develop the photography learning activity in a self-taught way, using very old and medium format machines. My favorite camera is the Zeiss Ikon Nettar.
