Author: Catarina Inácio

Hello, I'm Catarina but you can call me Cate. I'm a 20 y/o photographer and visual artist based (and born) in Lisbon, Portugal. My adventure with photography starts when I was 14 y/o. I decided to study for 3 years in a school with a photography course. Since July 2015, I work as a freelancer and photography is my full-time job since then. Most of my work is a praise to Life. How beautifully we are projected and how can I create something with this masterpiece called Life. I want to document reality when I do travel photography or documental photography. I want to create stories with humans. I want to create stories with my own mind and self, with my own depression, with my own pure happiness and the deepness of my conscious and subconscious. My conceptual photography, especially self-portraits, are exactly for an out of this planet thoughts. I love to capture humans loving each others. I love to capture love. You can also see here some work I do with couples, some weddings, some real women and mothers, etc.. During these times, photography is becoming more and more important to me, especially as a human. A human who needs to forgive herself. A human who wants to become more and more for herself. I had a lot of failures, I had a lot of victories. I am going to fail more and more. And I will have more and more victories, bigger than my failures. When someone ask me for an advice for the future as an artist, my main answer right now is: "First of all, don't you ever forget to be a human. Then you can be a true artist or whatever you want. But first, accept yourself as a human, not a machine, idol or something you will never reach".
