The name means “The King’s Beach”, but it’s more than just a beach. It has luxury villas, hotels, and of course, a beautiful beach.
Some time ago, me and a couple of friends were tasked with making a short film for class. We decided to make it about a person lost in a desert. The set was this beach. The only problem was that it was winter. But that turned out to be not much of a problem, we just had to wait for a clear day. And when that day came, we immediately set off on our trip. The road there is nice. We passed by a couple of towns and as we were nearing our final destination, the view changed. The trees and small houses changed to big luxury villas and there was also a lot of construction work, because of a new golf course. There is also a Marriott Hotel in there, but we didn’t get to see it.
When we finally got to the beach, we started preparing the props needed, and doing everything to start shooting. I took the chance to shoot with my Fisheye. The day was nice, the light was really good, and the place was beautiful. The sand is really soft, and since it’s a little far from the city, it’s not always full of people. The beach has rock formations throughout its extension. It’s a really nice place to visit and take some photos with your favorite Lomo camera.

Thirty-five degrees. Summer. Lisbon. Seven hills. Worst combination ever! What better to do than to escape the horrible heat of a tropical summer day in Lisbon with its too many hills to a fabulous beach that is just one bridge away? It's enough to just cross the stunning 25th of April Bridge to arrive in an exotic paradise, with great waves and even better people.
There's a certain air of sadness in Nishe's portraits. More often than not, the faces of her subjects are either partially or completely hidden. Sad, yes, but undeniably beautiful. Melancholia, as well as loss of innocence and the pains of growing up, are recurring themes in the photographer's body of work and she presents all these quite gracefully.
