Maria das Dores Crespo Castanho Ribeiro, is from Lisbon (1948) where she lives. Graduated in Economics (ISEG), she did her Masters in Communication, Culture and Information Technologies (ISCTE).
She started in photography in the 1970s, being represented in the catalog of the exhibition “Fotografia Portuguesa 1970-1980“ shown in several countries. He participated in the project “Elétricos”, part of a group of photographers whose works are on deposit at the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation. He was part of a collective that photographed the rehearsals of the play "Nobody" staged by Ricardo Pais.Having interrupted his path in photography in 1980, he returned in 2018 when he started to collaborate with the ACMP Gallery ESPAÇOdARTES.
In May 2020 together with Fernando Gonçaves they created the Incubator Photo Gallery.

With Maria Ribeiro created the Incubator Photo Gallery.
Taking as a starting point vacant buildings from old factories, the author experiences these scenarios where he introduces figures who embody the role of actors, gaining the images a surreal aura with his presence. It is this latent surrealism that the author seeks, in a staging where the black aesthetic and the dreamlike atmosphere of abandoned places converge beyond the threshold of reality. The photos were taken between 2016 and 2020.
Eduardo is a photographer and film director and has worked in the audio visual field since 1998. He has a Masters in Cinema with a specialization in Movie Directing from “Escola Superior de Teatro e Cinema” in Lisbon.
Eduardo is a certificated trainer and uses multimedia (cinema, photography, video, animation and sound) to work with children and teenagers to develop their creative skills.
In cinema he focuses on fictional and documentary filmmaking. He also participates in European Projects as a trainer and film director. As a photographer, Eduardo works for Food and Travel Portugal, and covered several music and photography events.
Eduardo has already directed 6 short author films, the last one “A Lost Film”, 11’, 2014.
According to modern standards of active successful growth passion for photography came to me pretty late in life. I have reached the acme (anc.-greek ακμή) age of 40, and my vision of the world has completed its formation from both, the aesthetic and visual, as well as spiritual and moral standpoints. That’s why everything that can be seen in my works is not a search of an artistic path or of a creative expression, but a pursuit to fill the frame withself-contained semantic load using visual methods available to my artistic education.

Between 2010 and 2013 I periodically lived in Ghana building a school in a remote village, it was here where my thoughts on humanity were changed for life.
Within the simplest of lives, cut off from the modern world I met the most beautiful of people and a charm unique to any imagination and tried to capture this with my images.
I especially like to work in black and white photography, as not only does it create beautiful images, it brings us a deeper look into texture, highlights contours and contrasts.
It brings shadows to life in a dramatic and pure way. We unconsciously allow people to reflect in a moment they normally wouldn’t.
They challenge perception, they capture elegance, they capture soul.
Mat Bonner: Born Cornwall UK 1979, a Poet and passionate street photographer. He has a great love for candid, landscapes and architectural photography. Capturing beauty in the likely and unlikely places.
