ROSSANA MENDES FONSECA

photographer and writer, whose personal research feeds off art and philosophy

Still life and fashion photographer for independent fashion and product designers, whose visuals have the dreamlike clean vibe of a crispy autumn day.

Furiously mugshooting people at the coolest coworking space in Porto, CRU cowork, where some of her obscure series and odd curatorial processes have been well accommodated.

Persistently writing and researching for her dissertation on photography as an apparatus of time and memory for the pHd in Contemporary Art and the Philosophy research group.

Trying to develop a future with past subjects at Pola Lab, a film laboratory co-founded at the cool coworking place.

Occasionally, speaking up at philosophy and art related academic events and classes. Occasionally, writing for such similar trifles.

As an avid reader, description, critique and problematisation are never overrated or concluded.
