João  Pedro Marnoto

Photographer, Director, D.O.P., Editor & Producer.

João Pedro Marnoto, born in 1975 in Porto, Portugal, after completing his photography degree in the UK, has devoted his work in nearly twenty years of professional practice within the grounds of documentary storytelling imagery, while using it towards a means of personal exploration. Both an excuse and a tool that allows him to live and explore meaningfully the many adventures and challenges that life offers, and extending his tools of trade from still into moving image, his approach intents to be an intimate exercise of awareness and consciousness, with his projects reflecting on issues of identity and the human condition within an environmental, sociological, personal and human perspective.
