Very happy to have had my 'Still..' project featured as part of Propeller Magazines second open call for 'Fiction'. I was never very interested in taking photographs. When I picked up my first camera it was a way of sharing time with someone I loved very much. A way of exploring the world we lived in and comparing views and discoveries. A dialogue that had a limitless potential. The relationship ended but I still think of photography that way. I am just no longer sure who I am talking to. I am honored that I am able to take part in this conversation and would like to thank everyone at Propeller and especially Sofia Silva for her writing on my work.

About Propeller (From their home page)
Propeller was born to promote the space given to photographic expression, but above all to think about the limits of its aesthetics, aiming at sharing original content. In addition to the publication of portfolios and visual essays by authors recognized by the public, at Propeller we’re focused on sharing new prespectives, that somehow potentiate a critical approach to the field of photography.
With each issue, Propeller embraces the challenge posed by one of the many paradigms of photographic aesthetics, inviting a diverse set of authors to jointly prepare a singular proposal on the theme in question. To this end, Propeller also hopes to be a space of critical mass creation, sharing essays, visual poetry and other disruptive works.
With a semiannual periodicity, Propeller is a project by HÉLICE‘s team – Duarte Amaral Netto, João Paulo Serafim, Rodrigo Tavarela Peixoto and Valter Ventura – coordinated by Sofia Silva.
