Visually Capturing a Person’s State of Mind

State of Mind, by photographer Nuno Moreira, is a collection of emotionally-driven photographs featuring the artist’s individual and unique perspective of the world. During his travels through Russia, Portugal, Mexico, and Spain, the Lisbon-based photographer documented the fleeting people, places, and things that he came across, finding an emotional connection to the many “states of mind” that exist within himself as well as within the world around him.

The project evokes a variety of reactions to the images, both peaceful and meditative as well as more energetically charged. Moreira eliminates color in order to create a strong visual experience, and the majority of his subjects are unaware of the important role that they play in his compositions. Both of these defining qualities invite us, as viewers, to create original narratives and to get lost in our own, personal states of mind. Moreira says, “This project is about capturing fleeting thoughts, abstract moods, and freezing atmospheres. Some images are a bit dark, others more urban, but they are all very real and they seem to create a kind of narrative as I go.”
