Margarida Almeida, a multifaceted artist born in Portugal, defies the constraints of traditional artistic boundaries, seamlessly blending her background in physics with her passion for photography to create a captivating body of work that transcends the ordinary.
With a degree in Physics and a specialization in Physical Optics, Almeida delved into the intricate principles governing image delivery through optical instrumentation. While her career trajectory veered away from the realm of physical optics, her fascination with the interplay of light and imagery persisted, leading her to explore the realm of photography.
Despite possessing technical proficiency in the mechanics of photography, both analog and digital, Almeida sensed a void in images obtained solely through technical means—an absence of soul that hindered their ability to connect with viewers on a deeper level. Seeking to imbue her work with a sense of emotional resonance, she embarked on a journey to complement her technical expertise with a deeper understanding of artistic expression.
Drawing inspiration from luminaries such as Josef Albers and the Op Art movement, Almeida incorporates elements of refraction and reflection into her artwork, infusing her compositions with a mesmerizing interplay of light and form. Through meticulous experimentation and exploration, she harnesses the power of color theory to create visually dynamic and illusionistic effects that captivate the imagination.
Almeida's artistic evolution has been shaped by a commitment to continuous learning and growth. She has pursued various training programs, including digital photography courses, street photography workshops, and image composition workshops, each enriching her artistic repertoire and expanding her creative horizons.
Currently, Almeida is spearheading an experimental lab at the analogue photography laboratory of Escola Secundária Amélia Rey Colaço-Linda-a-Velha, where she explores the intersection of traditional photographic techniques with contemporary artistic practices. Through her ongoing experimentation and innovation, she continues to push the boundaries of artistic expression, inviting viewers to embark on a journey of discovery and wonder through her captivating imagery.
As Margarida Almeida's artistic journey unfolds, her work serves as a testament to the transformative power of art to transcend disciplines, blur boundaries, and illuminate the beauty of the human experience. With each photograph, she invites us to see the world through a new lens, inviting us to contemplate the subtle interplay of light and shadow that shapes our perception of reality.
