Este foi o primeiro Photo Book por mim feito. Foi em inglês e publicado no iBooks e na Amazon, pretendia um público internacional.
I'M A SAILOR...
I have travelled all over the world. I have spent days, weeks, even months without going ashore and unable to communicate with my family.
Now I have decided to show, through my photographs, how life aboard a tanker is.
My daily routine starts with breakfast at 07:30. Then I'm in the engine room from 08:00 until 12:00. Then at 13:00, after lunch and if the weather allows it, I'll take a promenade on the deck to take some pictures.
Afterwards, from 13:30 to 17:00 it's back to the engine room, then another walk and dinner. To finish the day I have another
watch in the engine room until midnight.
These photos are the reflection of this part of my life, especially the ones take during my walks on the deck.
I'm not showing photos of loading operations and discharging operations because usually at those times I'm much too busy to take pictures. That's another story, anyway.
I hope you enjoy my photos and that they can help you understand our life.
