Part of what moves me in photography is to immortalize moments and people. I often go to the mountains and old villages in Portugal trying to capture the rural beauty before it is lost, gone forever.
Young people these days do not want to work in the country: why would they? With toughening European restrictions on production it's hard work that doesn't compensate the effort involved.
As such, we are losing our traditions, our beautiful ancient ways, our beautiful raw, gorgeous, hard working people.
We are getting old, I am lucky to still have witnessed such beauty. I am unfortunate enough to see it going away, fading into oblivion. I take my two sons with me in my trips so they can still enjoy what I enjoy. My 4 year old shoots with a Fujifilm, my 9 year old shoots with a canon 450D. Even if their memory fails them one day, they will always have the photographs.

One of my favourite writers, António Lobo Antunes. once said in an interview that "we only die when the last person that remembers us dies as well".
So I do believe that when I go to the hills and mountains, searching for our rural beauty, I'm helping to immortalize these people as well.
Keep her in mind. That will make her live forever.
