Together and mixed
The project was conceived and
materialized by the Higher Education Technique of the Psychology and Orientation Service of the School
And Secondary School Tomás de Borba, Joana Costa, who invited me to photograph students from the
Special Education of this school (which happen to be also my students), in partnership with the singer
Rubeshe Santos, DL Jay. In this project, during the construction of a Video Clip, I was able to capture
several emotions of students with disabilities in interaction with other "normal" students,
teachers, educational assistants, and the elderly population residing in the Santa Casa da
Mercy of Angra do Heroísmo.

Hugo Bernardo PORTUGAL
I, Hugo Fernando Henriques Mendes Bernardo, was born on January 18, 1979, in the parish of Our Lady of Pópulo, Caldas da Rainha. Until I was eighteen I studied in Rio Maior and lived in a small parish - Asseiceira. After completing the twelfth year, I continued my studies in the city of Leiria between 1997 and 2001, where I graduated as a Professor of Physical Education, at the Polytechnic Institute of Leiria, at the School of Education. After finishing my degree, I taught in some schools in the Lisbon region and, in 2003, I embraced the adventure of the Azorean islands and was placed on the island of Pico. Since then, I have continued on the misting islands, where I was placed on Terceira Island in 2006 to teach at the Integrated Cookies School. In 2007 I started teaching at Tomás de Borba Elementary and Secondary School, in the world heritage city, Angra do Heroísmo (Terceira Island), where I currently live.
In 2017 I started in the photographic world through the Initial Formation in Photography and participation in Complementary Formations in the field of Portrait, Street, Architecture, Photojournalism, Flash and also Editing.
I made several photographic records in landscapes around the Azorean islands and in trips around the world, as well as musical concerts, theater, among other events. I have a special taste for portrait photography, because I love to capture Emotions!
In 2019 I received two Honorable Mentions: MONOVISIONS AWARDS 2019, in the category Photojournalism and PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY (World Photography Day) by the “Academia Olhares”.
