About

Creative director, photographer and independent filmmaker luso french, Sara de Jesus Bento lives in Lisbon and  she is available to work anywhere.

Graduated from the Fine Arts of Le Mans and the Arts Décoratifs of Paris, after having made a stay at the Aalto University of Art and Design of Helsinki in Finland, Sara acquired a solid experience in the visual arts, photography of fashion and ambience.

Today, she offers a creative and singular know-how to realize unique projects with the ambition to introduce art and emotion in the everyday life. She supports each client through all the steps of their project offering a tailor-made service, developing and creating a story with elegant, sensitive and poetic images .

In her personal work Sara gives a particular attention to details and light. Her projects develop mainly around human and spatial encounters realized during exchanges, walking, but also rituals to create and explore an intimate and poetic relationship with her subject.

She participated in artistic residencies including “Conviver na Arte” in 2014, “AltoFest Residency” in 2015 and “Residency Cards” in Juazeiro in 2017, and her work has been presented in independent magazines, galleries and video festivals in Europe and Brazil.
