When I moved abroad, while being asked about my origins, I realized that the Azores are still a mystery to a lot of people. There are many who have no idea of the existence of this piece of land in the middle of the Atlantic. Little by little, through my descriptions and the images I showed, I felt that I had created an island that even I did not seem to know before: a fairytale, an enchanted place that, until I told and re-told about to people who had never heard of it, became even more special and incredible - not just to others, but also to me.
“In my island there is ocean and there is a spotted sea”
“In my island, our jewelry is made of stars”
“In my island, the vegetables are nomads”
“In my island, there are bathtubs hidden in the hills”
