Just thought about playing with a projector and a friend of mine, here is the result! Enjoy…! 🙂
This time I wanted to talk about something i find to be very interesting.
A couple of months ago i got to do a photo shoot for a new company, Gumelo. Created by three young entrepreneurs who developed a really curious product. It’s called EcoGumelo and it represents a fun new way of actually bring something to life and watch it grow, in this case it’s mushrooms I’m talking about, Gourmet Mushrooms.
The way it works is simple, you get a package, open it and just spray it twice a day with clean water. Then you just watch it grow, and it grows so fast you can almost see it get bigger by the minute. It’s almost scary! 😉
They were kind enough to give me a couple of packages to try it for myself, and after they grew and I cooked them, they were delicious!
The photo shoot itself was one of the must fun ones for me, shooting three young people, full of ideas and in a casual environment, with a couple of beers from time to time. 🙂
Here you can see some select photos:
Please spare some time to get to know what Gumelo is all about in their official website HERE!
Last November 14th was marked by a general strike that spread across many european countries, regarding the efects of the economic crisis and the repercussions it had on the european people. Here are some selected shots i took in the demonstration in Lisbon, Portugal.
Last week I took a little stroll by the streets of Alfama, Lisbon. Hope you enjoy it. Cheers!
The other day I went to an exhibition opening of a friend and great artist David Rosado, who inaugurated his recent exposition in Galeria Arte Periférica, in CCB, Lisbon. His work is vastly influenced by the cinema culture, often we can find allegories from the film industry mixed and invaded by cartoon figures and/or animals, creating this way a complex mosaic in each canvas that tells its own story, independent from each of the individual elements that compose them.
I loved this last exhibition, as it offered a duality between a dark mood, inspired in cult cinema scenes, portrayed in greyish and dark tones, and nature and/or cartoon elements that surprisingly inflict a dichotomy between fear and playfulness.
A little info about David:
