Gonçalo Fonseca is a documentary photographer based in Lisbon, working on Health and Human Rights stories.

In his early teens, he devoloped a passion for capturing those crucial moments of time, where you could see life pulsating if you looked carefully. Later he discovered the power of storytelling and journalism. Of giving voice to those who have none, of witnessing the world's injustices. That is what drives him.
