BOOK

"In his book, Miguel Ribeiro has approached one of the most complex and contentious issues facing humanity: the origins and evolutionary course of life. It is a serious effort, best described as brave, thoughtful, informed, and as free of preconceptions as is possible given the topic. The results are surprising and deserving of attention."
 Antonio Damasio

PHOTOGRAPHY

Four years after graduation in medicine (Lisbon), I moved to South Africa where I worked from 1980 to 1991. Inspired by the exuberant pathology and by the serene and dignified attitude towards disease and death by black patients, I was moved to record my impressions—this is a sample of a large collection of medical photographs of that period (shared with the Dept. of Internal Medicine of Kalafong Hospital, where I was working).

From 2000 to 2008 I was concerned with the abstract depiction of my own body, its textures and sculptural potential explored as an object, stripped of its human identity. During the latter two years of this period, I sequenced some of the photographic series in short films with music. This collection is titled "Abstract Body", while the films can be viewed in "Videos".

From 2008 to date, I have been taking photographs At Home aiming at a fantasized illustration of objects and friends or of some interaction with them. 

 

The photographs Mandela/Africa are memories from different occasions.
