Rita Braz is a photographer and art director, born and raised in Lisbon, but living and working in Berlin since 2010. She has a self-proclaimed obsession with analogue cameras and black and white films, which she translated into the ongoing online outlet for her work aptly named Analogue Stories. We particularly like her travel stories which take the spectator all over Europe. In the selection Rita made for us we see images from her Balkan tour, a road trip from Berlin to Sarajevo where she would capture the Film Festival. It also features some images from her homeland Portugal which she left, but always carries with her in her heart and finally images from her elaborate trips all over her new home, Germany, exploring the country all the way from the Dutch border to the Polish exit.
I’m passionate about adventures, exploring and telling stories through my film lens and I’m constantly looking for my tale on the road. For the imperfections, itchy feelings, sad faces, hopes and fears. For the frozen time slots, wrinkles, inked skins, wounds, scars, broken fairy tales and modern perceptions of love.
And it’s not just her travel photography we like, Domestic Stories; a series of visual tales which she created in collaboration with the Berlin based blog Semi-Domesticated also really speaks to us. The idea behind the series was to visit inspiring people in their homes, and get to know them through their five most cherished possessions, which turned out to be objects with great stories to tell, which were beautifully caught by Rita. Next to her free and commisioned photographic work Rita has also worked as an art director at Berlin-based agency VCCP for brands like Nike, o2 Germany, Heineken and Warner Music Germany.
We love Rita’s work and look forward to more beautiful trips caught on film.
