With this, his images consider the handling of information, and how it is shared and perceived.

Science drives Nuno’s curiosity to places impossible to reach and art is the middle-factor used to encompass new perspectives through the portrayal of frames and stories. Photography is the mean used to look for answers in regard to the experience of others.
