The Nuno Moreira State of Mind Pictures Are Poignant

The Nuno Moreira State of Mind photography series is full of raw emotion. Moreira has captured an impressive array of sentiments by way of his travels through Russia, Portugal, Spain and Lisbon, enabling him to grow artistically outside of his Lisbon home base.

State of Mind conveys often dark feelings through a black and white lens. In many of the pictures, the faces of his subjects are blocked. This mysterious quality piques the curiosity of viewers, prompting them to think of the lives and scenarios that may be troubling the men and women displayed.

Moreira is also concerned with the ephemeral nature of life, "This project is about capturing fleeting thoughts, abstract moods, and freezing atmospheres." This is apparent in the time lapse snapshots.
