"Buses, train platforms and e-cigarette breaks tend to be my most comfortable place to create. It is usually in those places that I zone out and give my mind freedom to express itself, though I’ve had some great ideas during boring conversations. Most of my ideas arise naturally in the form of intrusive images, which I then add to or take away from during the development stage.
Whilst working in mental health services, I've become fascinated with how non acceptance of oneself and one's surroundings causes so much unhappiness. I bring into my practice as an artist all the emotions, thoughts and stories we'd rather avoid and that, if acquainted with, can have a fascinating transformative effect. I have a strong attraction to the hidden side of things – or ‘shadows’ – latent in every single thing that surrounds us and often spend most of my time investigating their origins and close relationship with Culture– trying to answer the child like question of why do ‘shadows’ exist. And more often than not, poking fun at it. I see myself as an image maker and photography is the vehicle through which I express and escape myself. My ambition is to continue to create and execute some of the wildest images I have had, and in its process make others aware of things they perhaps never noticed.’’ – Diogo Duarte.
