Saudade

 

 

I pursue melancholia. In the moment of its photographic capture, I discover the cruel reality of society that is embedded in the sophisticated beauty of my surroundings. I isolate my subjects; push them to the corner to pull the viewer in, from intimacy to distance. Informed by my hopes and disappointments, I attempt to romanticize my problematic experiences and naiveté through atmospheric portraiture, landscape and still life that show periods of waiting, quietness and negative space.

Saudade is a Portuguese word that has no direct translation in English.It describes a deep emotional state of nostalgia or deeply melancholic longing for an absent something or someone that one loves. Moreover, it often carries a repressed knowledge that the object of longing will never return. My photographs contain projections of personal experiences; they are a distillation of complex emotions.

This project has already been partially funded by Project Launch Award from CENTER, and the funds collected will be used towards the production cost of the book, including design and printing. The book will be shipped in December if the campaign is successfully funded.
