VICTOR DE MELLO

VICTOR DE MELLO GREW UP IN PORTUGAL AND WHEN HE TURNED SEVENTEEN, HE MOVED TO RIO DE JANEIRO. THIS SPARKED A LIFE-LONG PASSION FOR TRAVEL AND A DESIRE TO EXPERIENCE NEW CULTURES WHICH TOOK HIM TO LIVE IN PLACES AS DIVERSE AS EDINBURGH, SINGAPORE, LONDON, CAPE TOWN, COPENHAGEN AND NEW YORK.

THIS KNOWLEDGE OF DIFFERENT CULTURES COMBINED WITH HIS FORMER CAREER AS A DEEP SEA DIVER AND PROFESSIONAL MODEL ARE THE MAIN INFLUENCES ON HIS PHOTOGRAPHIC STYLE. VICTOR’S EARLY PASSION FOR THE POLAROID LARGE FORMAT REMAINS IN HIS CURRENT WORKS, THIS FORMAT SERVES TO TRANSCEND THE MODERN GLOSS OF THE CONTEMPORARY PHOTOGRAPHIC WORLD INTO IMAGES WHICH RETAIN THE INTEGRITY OF THE CLASSIC PHOTOGRAPHERS.
