Of Silver And Light
Estefânia Silva is a photographer based in Lisbon and specialized in music photography. She is best known for her use of high contrast black and white and negative space, forever inspired by the work of punk legend Pennie Smith.
She started her career in 2012 with a borrowed 35mm camera, a passion for heavy music and a book on 1970s concert photography. While being self-taught, she gathered knowledge and experience by working backstage with internationally renowned fashion photographers for more than 10 years, informing her practice on experimentation and creative lightning. Her work has been published internationally on Noisey (US), Terrorizer (UK) and Zero Tolerance (UK), among others. She has also been featured in LP covers and inlays for bands such as World Narcosis and Grave Pleasures.
