André Paxiuta was born in Lisbon, Portugal, on January 11, 1983. He was drawn to photography at the age of 10 just for the fun of pushing the shutter of his dad's camera. He studied photography at the Ar.Co Art School and Geography in Lisbon. He is a photographer and documentary filmmaker splitting time between street shooting, visual storytelling and developing documentary projects to promote awareness on environmental and social topics. His eyes are driven by the human condition and its interdependencies with the natural world and mutations over time.
