We all have those moments when we feel lonely and, paradoxically, we seek even more solitude. The only thing we want is for silence to envelop us, for no one to see us. But imagine if instead of being alone there was someone, armed with a camera, ready to capture our body that lets itself go, our looks lost in the void, our slow and rhythmic breaths.
Gabriel Almeida does just that.
Of Brazilian origin, Gabriel Almeida now lives in Warsaw, Poland, where he devotes himself to photography and also to music.
Specializing in analog photography, Gabriel searches for moments of solitude, their suspended atmosphere and tells them in his shots through portraits of young girls captured in their most personal moments.
To emphasize the melancholy of the moment we find blue and green tones, recurring in his work.
For his shots, Gabriel Almeida finds inspiration mainly from cinema, drawing on the imagery of directors such as Tarkovsky and Almodovar.
