still in paradise


Naturalism it's the undress and repose of the social vestment of our daily life, who has tried it and enjoy it, knows that it's forever. Freedom is only truly felt when there's no barriers beyond our own skin.

"Still in paradise" is composed by photographies that try in a natural way to catch the movements of those who free themselves from the vestment mask and display their body allowing it to penetrate the elements, fitting and absorbing the natural way that surrounds them. "Still in paradise" it's about a group of friends reunite on a beach of the Portuguese southwest coast who had undressed for some days and receded to the original way they had arrive in the world.
