Francisco Henrique Melim (Lisboa, 1993) was raised amidst Sintra’s green mountains and Mafra’s historical village. His first photographs were captured through a dusty Vivitar V3800N inherited from his mother. He was 15 at the time. Influenced by the suburban rhythms and idiosyncrasies linked to skateboarding’s culture, he early on sought to develop a unique and singular perspective of his surrounding world. Melim’s favourite languages are those of photography and filmmaking. His portfolio showcases a body of work blending urban and natural references featuring the human’s intimate interactions with these distinctive environments.
