Ricardo Reis

For me, art is a way to review and express myself.

A perfect chaos and an eternal conundrum. That is how Ricardo Reis describes the world! Seven years ago he found a way to finally fit in. Photography became his own extension ever since.

After improving his knowledge of theory and techniques at IPF (Portuguese Photography Institute), Ricardo started to work for a well-known portuguese journal.

The desire of expanding his line of work led him to photograph concerts, fashion shows and to participate in short feature films and music videos as a cinematographer. Some of his images have already been exhibited in and out of Portugal.

At 32, Ricardo Reis is still longing to capture devastating war zone images and to pursue a solid career in cinema.
His main intention is to review himself, even if it is for the mere fact that he presents an image in a very personal way, according to his way to see the world and reality, almost always in a surreal way.

His reality is essentially a mixture of what everybody sees and the world of dreams and illusions that he can create. He likes to mix textures and uses the photographed person as the intrinsic element of the set, or the opposite, to use it as an external element almost intrusive.

He works a lot about extremes. The images can be very clean or extremely complex to understand.


Have a beautiful day!
