Rui Palha, photographer Portuguese, we can say that is a successor of Henri Cartier-Bresson, the photographer will surprise us with the Lisbon street photographs of his hometown.
Palha is a photographer who has won a place in street photography estimable arguably the Internet. Gradually, amazed by the quality of their work, the number has grown to be a lot of fans worldwide.
Rui Palha very interested honesty posed with his work: direct, uncompromising in style and connecting with the best photographic tradition of European and North American black and white. It is a “kicker” of the city, a toddler, because he knows that the best photos are always behind the next corner. And that is a condition of street photographers: the body of his work is born of continued frequenting squares and streets, trying to surprise a moment that can be decisive or at least express what the photographer has seen and experienced.
Palha is the best visual chronicler Lisbon and elsewhere in Portugal. A lesson in simplicity, humility and courage to learn to stay out of fashion and tyrants who rule the world of photography today.
