Video experience with the Sony a55 + Sigma 10-20mm. I´m a natura/landscape photographer, and I started venturing into the movie world. This is my first experience with conceptual filming.
These images were inspired by the local fishermen of Alvor, where this video was shot. Alvor is a little village in the South of Portugal, where fishing used to be the most important economical activity. Unfortunately, due to political changes and the rise of globalization, what once was a rich source of wealth for the portuguese, is now almost forgotten.
I've always been fascinated by these men... there's something about their gestures, their movements, their way of life, which touches me. You can feel the solitude in their eyes, and the harshness of the life they chose in their burned and thick skin.
A life of work, but also of reflection and contemplation...
Handheld shooting in manual mode.
