Jose Acosta for exhibition "Ilhas 2020 - Isolation"

Updated: Aug 31



I am 23 years old photographer, born in Venezuela and living in Portugal since 2014. Student of Photography at the Instituto Politécnico de Tomar.

I grow up on Venezuela, coming from a big family not rich, but also no poor. Raise by mother and grandparents, always keep in touch with the streets and all the environment of the hood. Lately this life will influence my style of Photography.

As and addict to movies, watching great films like Schindler´s List, Shaft, The Godfather, Annie Hall and many more, I get excited of learning the world of cinema, so this take me to learn about photography. There I fall in love with the 35mm old camera´s and the results of themselves.

All of this, the influence of the hip/hop, the hood life, and photographer´s such as Gordon Parks (my favorite) I decide to start studying photography after high school.

There, in Thomar, I define my style of photography and lifestyle. I decided to show the world how the human is, showing problems and good stuff about it. As Gordon Parks, defend the principles of society and criticise it when I should.
