HUGO GONÇALVES, Canadá.
(conteúdo retirado do portfólio do artista)
A minha tentativa de fotografar momentos, situações, texturas e sensações, levam-me à procura do instante que vai passar, do segundo que já foi e por isso a minha busca não cessa no momento fotografado, mas inicia-se assim.
O preto e branco realça as texturas de uma forma calma e silenciosa transformando a fotografia num tesouro único, pronto a ser descoberto pelo observador.
Hugo Gonçalves was born in Guimarães, Portugal in 1975.
From early on, creativity drew him in.
He achieved 3rd place in a Photography contest at the Guimarães’ Cultural Centre when he was 19 and in the same year he was included in a painting exhibition in the same place. 3 years later he published his own poetry book.
He got his degree in Architecture, Portugal in 2007.
For Hugo, Architecture is about creating an essence into the emptiness, while directing is about extracting the essence from the wholeness.
