Rui Palha. Street Moments.
Photographer Rui Palha’s black and white portfolio of Street Moments takes you on a journey into an inspirational new world. Palha believes that photography is the practice of being in the streets, of learning and capturing, giving flow to what the heart feels. He says, “Why black and white? Because if you are photographing in color you show the color of the clothes. If you use black and white you will show the color of the soul.”
In his book called Street Photography, Palha tells the stories of his everyday experiences along the streets of Lisbon. In the book, he references a very significant photojournalist when he writes, “A very special [Robert] Capa quote that I try to follow in photography: ‘If your pictures aren’t good enough, you aren’t close enough.’” By devoting himself to photography, Palha has turned his once hobby into a lifetime of passionate photographs.

#midnight in paris
Hah…. love it. I’d like a nice evening out, good conversation, no crazy clubs, no drunks messing my night out. And no hangovers please!!
Last night I did some of that, which were: nice evening out & good conversation. But considering that it’s the last Friday before the holy month, I just HAD to hit a crazy club. And no, there were no drunks messing my night out. Last night, was perfect :)
"For six years, I was a solo artist playing gigs with an acoustic guitar. I’ve played so many gigs in front of around seven people. It’s difficult to keep motivated but it’s all about growth. The love of music kept me going. I did it because I loved it, not because I was trying to get rich from it. After bad gigs, I’d write ten more songs that were better than the previous ten. Over time, I started to stand out a little bit from other people. It just took a lot of time and effort – becoming a decent songwriter doesn’t happen instantly."
