Born in 1989, Porto – Portugal
Raquel Vieira da Silva is a Portuguese independent Design Director and Photographer. For 10 years she has been calling the grey and multi-cultural city of London her home.
Her natural passion for art, cinematography, photography, music and conceptual thinking, has shaped her into a human who is in touch with her artistic side and who has a great understanding for visual culture.
Most recently, she has travelled to India to work with the NGO RSKS India.
This journey has left a huge impression on Raquel. It is now her desire to keep expanding these ripples of impact and widening the space for the unprivileged by exhibiting a selection of her work in conjunction with the stories entrusted to her.
Raquel believes a photograph becomes a space to be inhabited and shaped, not only through meaning but also by the sheer physical presence within its borders, acknowledging existence and life.
