Hello, I'm Madalena, a photographer and
visual storyteller.

My curiosity lets me explore notions of family life and how it has changed over time. As you might imagine, I regularly comb through my own family’s photographs trying to make sense of why this interests me so much.

I’m also currently dwelling into the history of portraiture and motherhood in a broader sense and want to share a couple of articles on the subject. This is more my personal link collection and I don’t have any connection to the authors apart from having read parts of their work:
