biography


Born in Sanfins (PT) in 1993, Bruno Oliveira grew up in Luxembourg, where he is currently based.
His origins, travel experiences and cultural background are the basis of his artistic work.
In 2015, after quitting his job as an educator, he started studying visual arts at the prestigious ENSAV La Cambre in Brussels, from which he graduated with a Master degree .



“What concerns my work, I seek to visualize, through photography, stories of real facts in a poetic way, being inspired by the field of documentary. My subjects often revolve around communities, migration and travels. For me, it is essential that there is something about a place or person that I need to record, remember or think about again.”
