Southern Portugal

The south of Portugal is one of the most livable geographical areas in all of Europe.

Characterized by the marvelous nature of peaceful living and the low cost of lifestyle while remaining in a European country, this country is rising to the headlines and is attracting tourists and travelers from all over the world.

Here the excerpt of a collection of images taken over the course of a year on multiple trips exploring the Portuguese coasts from Lisbon to the south and back.

The images were made mainly in winter when tourism retracts, leaving these places to ordinary life.

The people who live in harmony with nature, the fishermen on their return to the port in the afternoon, the many surfers who come from all over Europe to train during the winter, the streets, the places, the lights and the shadows.
The famous Lisbon imbued with its historic charm and still inhabited by the spirit of the restless Pessoa.

"This city is imbued with mystery, you can guess it in its spaces, in the warm light of the silent sunsets,
this city is inhabited by a thousand souls, they make no noise, they move indefinitely in the lights and shadows.
And of all these souls the most silent and the most mysterious is that of the poet.
