Doka Featured 23: Louisa Aguiar

Luisa Aguiar is a freelance photographer based in Brunswick, Germany. Born in Luanda, Angola and traveled and lived in many parts of the world throughout her youth – in Africa, Asia, America and Europe. ⠀

“My growth as a photographer has been through various life experiences and, mainly, through the daily practice of walking and photographing.” @luisarosaaguiar improved and learned some techniques through research, perseverance and her passion for photography and for all that is beautiful. ⠀

“One of the things that compel me to photograph is the desire to notice the singular details.” So she created her own style that is based on simplicity. She zeroes in on details such as the simplicity of a line, which separates the horizon from the pasture and seems to move with the landscape. ⠀

“Everything that is excessively filled up bores me. I privilege simplicity.” Though it’s increasingly difficult to keep in daily contact with nature in its purest and wildest form Luisa leans into the details of her compositions to capture the essence of the wild.⠀

It may be a scene photographed hundreds of times. But the dialogue between photographer and subject is always changing — sometimes by natural forces such as the wind and rain, sometimes by more intangible ones, such as time and perspective. ⠀

“Shooting is a form of a dialogue between the photographer and the photographed subject.” ⠀
