Meet Beto Borges
Photography is for me a way of paying special tribute to the spectacular and yet subtle beauty of life expressed in nature and cultures. It is a way of reminding myself and hopefully my brothers and sisters of how divine is the Creation around us. Photography can be a testimony of God's creation.
