Photograph by Maria Louceiro

Maria Louceiro

Inspired by studying Mining and Geo-Environmental Engineering, Porto-born photographer Maria Louceiro creates captivating, ethereal scenes.

During her time studying Geology, Maria found herself drawing and photographing the mines a lot more than working in them. Her atmospheric yet tender imagery often has magical feel to it, with her use of colour integral to creating this aesthetic.

It is easy to get swept away with the same intrigue for the beauty of Maria’s compositions as it is when admiring the work of Ryan McGinley, there certainly seems a shared understanding and eye between the two.

Having recently finished her degree in Communication Design at ESAD – Matosinhos, she now photographs a lot of things beside the mines. In order to create this striking photographs Maria mixes analogue and digital techniques.
