"Nine to five workers watch films to escape reality for a couple of hours, but in my world I am consumed by film. 


Film for me is a pilgrimage, where many departments intersect and collaborate to creative something spectacular. The art of modern filmmaking is the layering of many elements to create what appears to be authentic, however fantastical or removed in time the story may be. As a photographer, I aim to freeze those moments in my stills capturing a world that ceases to exist or creating a world that once belonged only in our imagination." - Raquel Fernandes
