About the Book
Collection of black and white photographs with descriptions of some of my favorite places and things in the island of Sao Miguel (aka The Green Island), in the Azores, Portugal.
An award winning and internationally published visual artist, author and fine art photographer, a husband, a father (and now a grandfather as well) and a musician, Based in Woodstock, Ontario since the end of 2012. Born in the small island of Sao Miguel, in the Azores, Portugal, in a city of about 45000 people, I lived in Edmonton, Alberta from 1991 to 2012 where I worked in several industries with computer technology taking the last 10 years. During that time I also played drums in a Luso-Canadian dance band and at the same time learned the art of digital photography. In 2012 I decided to go full time into arts and photography. My subjects inspire me to photograph their uniqueness in a modern, contemporary fashion. Most of my artwork has been labeled as 'powerful and thought provoking' by my peers. Some times my images are dark and haunting and other times they are colourful and happy.
