Bio: José Augusto Diniz, born in Portugal, 1972, mostly lived around Estoril ever since.
CV: "Curso de Especialización en Fotografia de Autor", Escuela Too Many Flash, Madrid, 2018; a handful of small prizes in local amateur photo competitions; a big wall covered with family pictures and a bunch of hard drives filled with crappy shots.
Artist Statement: (Bla bla bla, you know the drill.) Constantly searching for originality and profound meaning, some contemporary art seems to have drifted away from what I would think to be it's primary objective: the representation of beauty. Just beauty. Or, at the very least, something remotely interesting. However, I'm no artist nor expert, just a self-taught amateur with more cameras than talent. And I already have a family, a life, a place to be. This allows me total freedom to pursue human emotion and expressiveness, in a timeless and universal visual language, through photography (?!?). Tick the box. Next.
