Exposure № 099: Ghosts

Photographer Mário Macedo tells us about his process:

“I only shoot on film, with cheap reliable cameras, and I do not aim to create beautiful photos, but personal photos, images that help me remember places, things or people. It’s kind of a cheap way to explain it, but my camera is my diary, it’s the easiest way for people to know me.”

Born in 1989 in a little village in the north of Portugal, Mário Macedo graduated in Sound and Image and then completed a Film-making course at the European Film College in Denmark. He started having interest in taking photos after a friend of his gave him an old Zenit when he was living in Croatia. Since then he has been a photo junkie, taking photos of everything and everyone that interests him. His submissions to Dr. Hurley’s Snake-Oil Cure can be found here.
