Biography

arlindo_pinto_retrato

Arlindo Pinto (b. 1962) based in Lisbon, born elsewhere! He likes to think of himself as a photographer…. which he really is since the end of the twentieth century! He’s passionate about art, music and people. Photography is a way for him to connect with mankind.
He teaches photography at Circulo Artístico e Cultural Artur Bual and he is a member of the Photobook Club Lisboa team. He made solo and collective exhibitions and published his work in magazines, photography zines and books. He’s looking for clues about the meaning of life… if there is one.

Artist Statement

His photography has an insistent focus on man as a multifaceted, spiritual and relational being, but also a victim of himself. The result of what he does is viscerally grounded in his beliefs and convictions to wich the images give life. Photography is a way of talking about the issues that concern him, to which he wants to give voice and around which he intends to generate debates, verbalized or interior.
