BicicletaEmLx is the title I give to all the photos of bicycles that I make in my city. I am from one of the most beautiful towns in the world - Lisbon. It faces the river Tejo and it is also known as the city of the seven hills, the highest being “Colina do Castelo”, which has a stunning view at sunset. I was born here and I work here, I know the people, the smells and the light of this city. In recent years I have seen my city undergo major changes, many to my displeasure, and others that left me very happy. Creating spaces especially for bicycles is probably one of the ones I liked the most. In this book, I tried to gather some photos that demonstrate how its inhabitants are living and consequently transforming the city.

My name is Benjamim and this is my first book. I am a freelance photographer and you can find me on Twitter by the name @Benjamim. I also have a Flickr account ( where you will find many of my snapshots and when I have time and patience I update the FotoBen blog (
This book or notepad hopefully serves as an invitation to come and meet my city. The photos that you will find here are all of my own creation. When I am shooting most of the time I work in manual mode, I do very little photo editing work, I limit myself to small adjustments. I love to shoot but have little time / patience to edit my photos. In the end, I think you will find pictures closer to reality.
