Francisco Ricarte is Portuguese, born in 1955. Since 1976 has been a photo enthusiast, initially on B&W format, later also on using colour. He moved from Portugal to Macau, China, in 2006 and in the same year also “migrated” to the digital processing image. This part of the world has been fascinating him since arrival, but also allowed him to see with “new eyes” his former “world”.
Photography has always been a critical way of expressing his view of the world, being on a professional basis (Architect and urban planner since 1979) or personal view. How photo helps to foster our understanding of what surrounds us (being built or being nature) has been his challenge and pursuit since early photo days – he has developed a no of “photo sets” summarizing his views, which, sooner or later, will be exposed to a larger audience.
Further, he is also a passionate of the Arts – place, memory and identity are his passion words and intellectual themes, mostly regarding urban matters, visual culture, literature, and poetry.
