"Ich habe den Wunsch zu fotografieren. Ich gehe mit meiner Kamera hinaus. Ich entdecke etwas, das mich emotionell, geistig und ästhetisch aufregt. Ich sehe das Foto vor meinem inneren Auge, und ich komponiere und belichte das Negativ. Ich gebe Ihnen das Bild als Äquivalent dessen, was ich sah und fühlte."

- Alfred Stieglitz (1933)

    "I met João at Flickr, when he was still known as "JoãoBambu", and when the Flickr community was still small and everybody knew everybody. He's a cool dude, a good photographer with a keen eye and a sharp sense of humor, a nice friend, and a great inspiration."

    "JOAO P. WAS MY FIRST....

    flickr testimonial, that is.. . he was the first on flickr to notice my poetry, my food blog, me. And he was one of the first to inspire me to go further with my photography -- because when I started I didn't know anything. He has been a contact of mine since 2005.

    This has been a long time coming Joao. And should have been said so much earlier!
    +++++++++++++++++++++++

    He is inspiring. His roots come alive and are echoed in his subjects / his framing / colors. Like a subtle drumming , a palpitation matching his hearts own rhythms .

    His photography grabs you. Constant evolving of his works, make the viewer gasp. He takes subjects often abandoned and turns them into interesting, textural , insightful works. You can't just glance at each photograph, you need to study them to take in the depth and secrets that are contained within.

    I expect Joao to encompass all of his dreams. His talent / drive / caring is thrown out in waves, and you can't stop that type of energy!"

His Flickr photography also document the progression of the skill in his beloved craft. The quality of the pictures have increased tremendously as he has transformed from beginner to expert. An added dimension is the great stories he writes for many of his pictures. Thanks for sharing your beautiful life with us Joao!"

    "Joao is definitely one of my favorite Flickrers. He's funny and clever and kind.
    His incredible amount (!!!) of pictures are just great; I always learn something from the captions too. There's a large variety of places he goes and things he captures in his photography.
    You watch, Joao is going to be the next best professional photo journalist!!"

    "Joao is a poet of the imagination. His photos reflect an innocent playfulness and an endless curiosity about the world that surrounds him.

    I always look forward to the next stream of Joao's pictures - they are whimsical, colorful and so beautifully composed."
