Intimacy

Nefelibata

Portugal.

Nefelibata

(n.) lit. “cloud walker”; one who lives in the clouds of their own imagination, or one who does not obey by the conventions of society, literature, or art.

“Life is an experimental journey that we make involuntarily. It is a journey of the mind through matter, and since it is the mind that journeys, that is where we live. So there are contemplative souls who had lived more intensely, more widely and more turbulently than those who live externally. The end result is what counts. What was felt is what was lived. A dream can tire us out as much as physical labour. We never live as hard as when we have thought a great deal.”

Fernando Pessoa

He started his career working as a press photographer but little by little has moved away from editorial and media work to concentrate on his personal projects. Bacelar sees photography in the same way he sees life, taking it to the limits of his quest for answers and experiences that help him to better understand both the world and himself.
