Lúcia Lemos

Lúcia Lemos was born in northern of Portugal in a city called Vila Nova de Famalicão. She moved to Macau, China in 1982 and has, ever since, lived there. She’s a Manager of Arts and is developing her skills for photography and video making. Her special relation with images comes from her many years of exposure to the artistic milieu in the city of Porto.

As a photographer working mainly in B/W photography, her preferred subject is character portrait. Her unconventional approach to photo shooting, privileging spontaneity and natural lighting in an age of sophisticated technology, has won her praise.

She had made a series of portraits of women artist of Macau where exhibited at Macao Cultural Center. At 2004 she published a photographic essay on one of Macau’s leading writers, Henrique de Senna Fernandes. The two latest works were showed in ECBerkeley; “Shared Emotions” and “No Rio dos Meus Olhos” in April of 2005.
