Américo dos Santos Hunguana
Artist name: bocarras
Born in Maputo, Mozambique. Lives and works in Berlin, Germany
Bocarras was born and raised in Mozambique. Out of interest and curiosity he started photographing approximately 10 years ago. It quickly turned into a passion and he immersed himself in the photography scene in Maputo.
The photography of Bocarras is passionate and for him there is no motive not worthy of a picture. He is not trying to follow a particular style, nor a particular mode of taking photos. He prefers the old way, black and white and analogue, where it all came from and where you can still find a special kind of beauty in the image.
Bocarras searches for the small big moments, for the moments of beauty that are reflected in the photograph. He works constantly without pressure and allows himself time to think and reflect before taking a photo. He finds his motives on the street, in the buzzing life as well as the silent moments, during both night and day.
