Welcome to Joao Pires Photography.
Hope you enjoy these photos.
Two of his great passions in life are travel and photography. Joao Pires believes that travel broadens one’s view of the world.
As he studied economics and sociology, experiencing other cultures, meeting people from other communities and other countries and seeing the beauty, and sometimes ugliness, of the world has helped him understand that all of our lives are at once interconnected and individual.
It has made him better appreciate his portuguese culture as well as that of the people he had met and the lands he had saw and had become a much more tolerant person as a result.
Through his photography he seeks to document his own personal experiences, to capture scenes and events as he see them, specially the detail and to share with others the beauty and diversity of the world he saw.
As the images of other photographers have inspired him to explore the world, he hopes his work will inspire others to do the same.
