Lili was born in Paris ,from Immigrants parents, she was raised by her grandmother in a small village in Portugal, then at the age of 6 returned to Paris to live with her mum, by 13 years old returned to Portugal to a small fisherman village, and at 16 she moved to England by herself .
Lili went to Photography School at the Miami Art Center school.she lived in Spain , Mexico , New York , Miami, Asia and East Africa .Traveling and taking photos become her window to freedom and personal growth. Learning from all the diversified cultures and experiencing life in so many places has allowed her to return to that happy 5 years old child. Every time she opens her eyes or looks at someone she thinks of a picture and story to tell. Portraiture is her favourite, with a special care for tribes, underprivileged communities, minorities and specially women empowerment.
Lili decided to follow her heart and travel her way; taking portraits of people in remote areas all over the world in under privileged and extinguished communities and Tribes for different projects and NGO`s.
Lili is seeking for purity & simplicity in a picture as well as understanding the meaning of each penetrating look and ways of living and feeling.
BEING WITH NOTHING IS THE RICHEST GIFT I GOT IN LIFE, IT ALLOWS ME TO CONNECT.
