The well known and ace Portuguese photographer Nuno gets candid on his Indian journey whilst in a recent interview.
Sharing more details about his love for India, in a very new interview, Portuguese photographer Nuno gets candid on his Indian journey.
Nuno Oliveira permanently shifted to India two years back. As the nature of work projects changed, his stay kept getting longer. Speaking in more details about same, he said, “The first time I came to India was in April 2016. I have been here for almost five years. At first, I used to come here for small periods of time, like one or two months. But as I started to get into the market and create my own circle of friends here, I started to stay longer and longer. Also, when I started to direct TV shows here, the nature of these jobs demanded my presence here for longer periods at a time. About 2 years ago, I decided to move all my things from Lisbon to Mumbai and set my base here”.
Sharing more about his love and fondness for India, Nuno says that he always wanted to visit India and throwing more light on it, Nuno asserted, “India has always fascinated me. One of my all-time favourite movies is called The Fall (by Tarsem Singh) and it is mostly shot in India. It was always on my bucket list to visit the amazing locations where this movie was shot. I have to admit that when I first got here, my knowledge of India was very limited. I had watched some documentaries and movies, but mostly productions done by non-Indians and therefore they offered a limited range view of the country. I had this idea that I would come here for one year and get to know everything, but I had no idea about the true magnitude of this country and its culture. I now understand it will take a lifetime to see everything I want to see”.
Ask him, which has been his most memorable projects, he says, “In terms of production value, I would say the TV shows (Vogue BFFs and Styled by Neha) were the most prominent. Those are the projects where I get to be involved very early on and participate in all aspects of pre-production, production, and post-production. On the fashion side of my work, definitely working for magazines such as Vogue, GQ, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, Grazia, and Cosmopolitan, to name a few”.
