Ana Vieira de Castro’s look at the behavior of the human body

My name is Ana and I’m from Fafe, Portugal. My images are portraits and self-portraits photographed in natural and humanized places where I study the behavior of the human body as an identity in each of these places, where the body has the main focus. Every piece is photographed with a digital camera, and they’re always part of a series and not a unique piece. These works have a big surrealist influence because of the body positions and because of the way it relates with what surrounds it. All these images have common characteristics, such as the lightly color desaturation, the use of texture, patterns and a lot of color.~Ana Vieira de Castro
