SYMBIOSIS “Faces of Urban Decay” by Correia

I’ve been inspired and influenced by the characteristics that define the environment that surrounds me. Shortly after graduating in design I decided not to complete my Masters to pursue my studies in Photography, and this ultimately resulted in a blending of techniques and disciplines, finding my own form of expression. To me, photography was always something plastic and malleable, therefor subject to interpretation.

I illustrate the symbiosis between the urban and the human, trough the manipulation of digital photographs and creation of custom negatives for exposure under UV Light. Bridging the gap between the digital and analog, exploring the versatility and uniqueness that resides with in them, by building a personal interpretative discourse based on the specific characteristic features of the city. ~Correia01 02 03 04 05 06
