"Photo With Love" by Ana Abrao
I´m about to live a dream!
Would you like to come with me?
Round World Trip
I challenged myself to a new goal: travel the world with no rush along with my camera
Why? What for? Life is made of small things, brief moments, experiences and learning from it. Getting to know other countries and, above all, understand other cultures has always been a passion. Therefore, mixing Photography (an old passion) and the will to travel, the very word passion becomes too strong altogether. Nothing stopping me now, travelling the world in no hurry, because being in a hurry, we miss the best of the places and people around have to offer. Making this dream come true, I will go on a trip without limits, savouring every moment, every place, every meeting and all the discoveries, yet to be made. I consider this initiative an investment in my own growth and I want to share my experiences with you.
I want to get inside people´s minds through their eyes. I want to go beyond the portrait, I want to find out who they are, how they live, what do they think and which are their dreams. I want to stimulate interactions and live positive and rich experiences.
I want to expand my vision worldwide and I wish I can better understand cultural differences. I want to leave my own comfort zone and grow with this experience.
I want the reader to take part of this experience and to dream along with me. I want to express my opinion, my feelings and my thoughts. I want to share portraits along with the person´s stories and I expect to share unique experiences …
Joy, Anxiety, Excitement!
Days to depart...
“Photo With Love” is inspired in a beautiful project called “Help Portrait”, implemented in almost 70 different countries and continues growing… created by the american celebrity photographer Jeremy Cowart. It´s goal is to provide people in need the possibility of having a print given to them where otherwise they would not have or afford. Having had the chance to photograph in one these events has inspired me to go forward with this project of my own. Throughout my journey, I will be donating prints (individual and family portraits) along with my work, for people in need.

Images that tell a story
Lives, cultures, colours, experiences, emotions, images, smells, sounds, movements … I want to tell stories of the world!
I feel completely exhausted. It’s my first day in Nepal. I spent the morning and afternoon in a kind of mental trance, at the same time amazed with the scenery that unfolds before my eyes on this exotic stage right in front of...
I stop at the main entrance of the Pushkar Lake. The visual spectacle of colored people (hundreds) entering and leaving the sacred gate has something cinematic about it. I have back pain. I see a place to sit by the door...
