Magnética Magazine published my latest editorial, and an interview with me – in portuguese, sorry foreign readers! If you want me to translate it or something say so in the comments, it’s a mighty long interview. Luísa Cativo tem 25 anos e vive a vida no formato 35mm. Formação não lhe falta: Artes Visuais e […]
