A Journey of the Fish
A Journey of the Fish - Sardinha is a story of tradition, struggle and hope in the face of adversity. It's a story that is unique to Portugal, but one that has universal relevance in today's world.
Journey of the Fish became also my own journey in the sardines’ pathway exploring all the aspects along the way.
This is a story of how modernisation, overfishing and disregard for the environment can have dire consequences on the local communities and the ecosystem. But it is also a story of resilience and hope, as the local communities and authorities are working together to revive the industry.
Lisbon/ Bratislava-based conceptual documentary and fine-art photographer from Bratislava/ Slovakia whose primary focus is on the climate and biodiversity crises affecting ocean and socio-economical and ecological impact on the fishing industry in Portugal.
Presently one of the alumni of the 2022-23 VII Photo Masterclass, proud father of 2 and Visual Storytelling Masterclass by The Raw Society participant.
