André Gonçalves


André Gonçalves is a Portuguese photographer, born in Madeira, who expresses himself through portraits, self-portraits, and random images that unexpectedly appear from nowhere and get immortalized by his lens.” Many of his photographs hint at the bizarre and the eccentric, bordering on the surreal, as the image of the stately horned woman portrays.

Some of his photographs take the surreal into darker, more twisted places; the shadows and mists bordering the edges of his compositions add mystery and foreboding. Most striking is his use of color. Golden lips and red hair contrast against pale skin, or a pale face emerges from vibrant evergreen leaves. We look forward to seeing what his “chaotic mind” produces next.
