ZONA: Mental and Physical Memories from Tokyo and Lisbon


Nuno Moreira is a visual artist who resides in Lisbon. Although he studied film studies he works as a photographer, designεr and, in general, he is involved in visual art. “A significant part of my work as a photographer is an exploration on visual perception and a way of photographing thoughts or mental landscapes.” he explains. “These landscapes spring both from an inside perspective, as well as from someone on the outside looking into a particular topic within“.


The project ZONA emerged from his hometown, Lisbon, and several visits to Tokyo. He expressed mental and physical memories through his camera. And did that with an inward outlook, as Aristotle suggested: “The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance“. The result is photographic documentation of different interior landscapes and situations. “After many sketches the project grew into a photographic documentation of different interior landscapes and situations.” he remarked. The result is impressive. Enjoy.
