My Bio I am a Designer and Photographer whose wife is of Portuguese ancestry. She introduced me to the Portuguese Holy Ghost festas. Being non-Portuguese myself, I became fascinated with the visual iconography and sense of community exhibited by attendees to the festas. I photograph these events through the eyes of a cultural outsider, and capture extraordinary moments that pass as commonplace to the seasoned attendee.
