SAUDADE
2016-2017


'Saudade' is a Portuguese word expressing a certain kind of melancholy imbued with nostalgia and this is exactly what I feel when I think of my second collection. It flows seamlessly into 'Orgulho' since it has the same original idea but in a different context: the Portuguese community in Luxembourg. While accompanying immigrants in their daily routine as well as their journey to Portugal, I was awed by the fact that it is now difficult to say in which country my pictures were actually taken,
Portugal or Luxembourg - a sign which should make everyone become aware of the fact that home is where the heart is.
