Alexandre Manuel first fell in love with photography in 2000 while traveling around São Paulo in Brazil. With a disposable camera in his bag, he started to record every corner of urban landscape he came across in this wonderfully strange, enormous city. In this way, his travels quickly became a school of learning. However, even before he discovered how capture it, he already had a love for the focus of his attention. In the same way that a sports photographer has a passion for athletics, his landscape portraits are above all, a love of nature.
He is fascinated with the temporary nature of photography, by using a long exposure, high key technique and the study of atmospheric conditions for optimum effects. He tries to create a continuous scene that is untouched by time and only framed by traces of human contact in structures, rocks and maritime locations.
