Follow Your Heart by Vitor Lopes provides a glimpse into his deepest thoughts, with every photograph carefully crafted to resonate with our feelings.

‘’ My photographs serve as a powerful spiritual beacon, not just for you, but for me as well. By visually representing our hearts as external entities rather than internal ones, they serve as a constant reminder to prioritize the things that truly nourish our souls. In times of uncertainty, fear, or when faced with difficult decisions, following your heart will always lead you to the right path.’’


Artist ( Description ): 

Vitor Lopes, born 47 years ago in Almada, Portugal, has been moulded into the individual he is today by the profound family values of both Portugal and Cape Verde culture. His passion for basketball, surfing, skating, art, and literature has also played a significant role in shaping his identity. Over the last twenty years, he has discovered a sense of comfort and belonging in the dynamic atmosphere of London, which he proudly considers his creative home.

Three years ago, Vitor dived into the world of photography and dedicated himself wholeheartedly to learn this craft. Through his distinctive style, he demonstrates a wealth of creativity and a clear artistic vision, resulting in his participation in two group exhibitions in London in 2023.

In 2023 his first group exhibition, "Surf Skater Portraits," took place at the Espacio Gallery in London in May, while the second showcase, "Passion," adorned the walls of The London Photo Show at the Bargehouse Gallery, London in November of the same year.
