André Cepeda was born in Coimbra in 1976. He currently lives and works in Lisbon. He attended the course of Photography at the École des Arts d’Ixelles in Brussels (1995-1996) and began to exhibit his work regularly in Portugal and abroad from 1999 onwards. His artistic practice is attentive to everyday spaces, some forgotten and others rejected. Cepeda seeks to build new ways of looking at reality, as well as create new contexts for the images. The series Ontem [Yesterday] (2010) follows the lives of inhabitants located in the most marginalized outskirts of the city of Porto, and brings together images of landscapes, interiors and portraits. He is the founder of the Blues Photography Studio, which produces works of photography, printing, digitization and image treatment for various artists and institutions.
