Introducing my new photo blog

By | Emanuele, Life, Travel Photography | One Comment

Greetings all – If you follow me on social networks, then you probably already know the news. I recently launched my new photo blog – It was about time that I revamped my online presence, and creating a self-branded photography based blog was part of my revamp strategy.

Romana and I will keep posting about our travel related stuff here, but only when there’s something worth sharing. On the other hand, all the photography related content will, from now on, be published on the new blog only.

The Portuguese Travel Cookbook

By | Emanuele, Places, Portugal, Travel Notes, Travel Photography | No Comments

I haven’t made a post in the last couple of months. Part of the reason is that I got increasingly bored with normal blog themes as platforms for visual storytelling (if you follow my blog you know I mostly post photo series). But recently I came across Exposure and loved it. So, because it was about time I posted some updates about my latest work I created a free Exposure account and made a photo series there, rather than on this blog.

The photo post is about my work with writer and blogger Nelson Carvalheiro as part of the Portuguese Travel Cookbook project, and the three week trip which saw us touching all 4 corners of Portugal, photographing people, landscapes and food, and, of course, eating a lot.

Porto - Sao Joao 2014

São João’s night: Getting hammered in a partying Porto

By | Emanuele, Places, Portugal, Travel Notes, Travel Photography | 7 Comments

Although the main reason for my recent trip to Porto was my Tascas project – a documentary photography project about traditional taverns in Portugal – I happened to plan things in order for me to be able to stay until after São João’s night. São João is part of the so called Santos Populares (=Popular Saints) along with Santo Antonio and São Pedro. The Popular Saints are celebrated in June, more or less everywhere in the country, with festivals, fairs, cultural and folklore events, and parades. Read More

Kerala, India: Making the most of Kochi

By | India, Places, Travel Resources & Tips | 3 Comments

High on the list of my favourite places to visit in India, and a very popular tourist destination with those who visit Kerala, Kochi is a wonderful blend of tropical, south Indian atmospheres and European colonial heritage (ie. Portuguese, Dutch and British).

Being so rich in history and having lots to offer, there are quite a few sights to take in. But history ain’t the only thing – with the Kochi-Muziris biennale which launched in 2012, the city is developing an intriguing arty spin. As my friend Vijay puts itit may not be a Berlin or a London yet but it is getting there”.

So if you want to visit Kochi and make the most of it, why not spend a few more days there and give yourself enough time to make it justice? Read More
