Not to forget the black and white portraits

In the photograph of street portraits, I have in me a force that I have no doubt that comes from the people I photograph.

Be this portrait of whoever. Be it done in the rush of the streets or, sometimes, in the calm that the streets also offer me.

Whether these photos are made candidly or with permission of the person portrayed I always win. Not because I did a beautiful portrait, even though this is rare. Difficult. But, I always gain by the energy, the strength that the people portrayed pass me.

This strenght, this energy empowers me and makes me follow my path in photography.

A path that I do not know exactly where it will take me, where I will arrive, but that the walk in this way makes me very happy. Of this I am absolutely certain.

I'm an amateur photographer based in the city of São Carlos, São Paulo state, SE Brazil. I used to make photographs since I was about 15-17 years old. My first camera was a Olympus Trip, an analogue camera. Many years after that I switched to several digital cameras. Presently I own a Nikon D500 with a small set of lenses and a Fujifilm X100T 23mm. A few years after my retirement as an university professor, after teaching Environmental Chemistry at the Federal University of São Carlos (UFSCar) for 45 years, I decided to invest money and time dedicating myself more seriously to photography. I´ve taken on-line courses as well as I´ve participated to various photography festival across Brazil. By far, my biggest interest is street photography. And in it, I'm interested in portraits, everyday street scenes and architecture.
