António Valente's photos show the great diversity in buildings, statues and daily motions on the campus, in all seasons and at any moment of the day.

Photography

António's previous work at Wageningen University & Research offered him the opportunity to access unique spots on campus, for example, the roof of the Forum building. Through his work Valente encourages people to look differently at the Campus and to see it's beauty.  

Photography is my passion. I'm always hunting light. Always looking for situations with special lighting conditions and unusual shapes. My camera is an extension of myself.
