Ludgero Filipe

I remember the first photo I took, it was on my dads Minolta X-700, it was of my mum sitting in her 72 yellow Ford Cortina when we were on holidays back in Portugal in 89, the passenger door was open and she was sitting inside waiting for my dad and sister.  When the photo was developed, I instantly fell in love with photography, it warmed my heart.

This new found interest had fuelled my creativity and I began to view the world in a different way.

I began to notice the beauty in the balance & juxtaposition between light and shade, old & new, young and old.  I continued to teach myself by photographing people and things in different scenarios and lighting conditions while reading and learning from the masters like William Klein, Irving Penn, Robert Doisneau & Brassai.
