2019 - Current Street Emotions - Photography Exhibition on emotions comparing NY/Lisbon contexts. I spent October 2018 in NY working n the themes of emotion and morality at CUNY and decided to organise a photo exhibition entitled "Street Emotions". The question I asked people was simple yet deep: "How do you feel?". The replies were telling and addictive. Some prototypes can be access here: https://photos.app.goo.gl/LLMUB2AUFrUuRRbf8 The objective is to give the same attention to image and text. The project is looking for funding for framing and print. (2019)
