A Passion for Life by Rui Palha
To Portuguese photographer Rui Palha, photography is a challenge to capture the bustle of everyday life and a way to learn about the world. Since age 14, Palha has devoted his time to street photography and to long-term sociological projects in problematic neighborhoods of Lisbon.
A black and white user, Rui Palha mixes geometry with the human figure to create unique images, following the master photographers in street photography, but revealing his unique vision.
In a recent interview Palha states, “I need to say that I am not so good at expressing my feelings nor my thoughts through words. I prefer try to do that through images.”
