My name is Matilde Viegas, I am a photographer based in Porto, Portugal. I primarily document intimacy, and the lives of others, using both digital and film photography.

My work has been published by Die Zeit, Taz, Iittala Journal, Oh Comely Magazine, Canal 180, Lenscratch, BOOOOOOOM, VICE, and others. In 2018, I was awarded a scholarship by Spazio Labo to attend the workshop “Finding Intimacy,” led by Elinor Carucci. In 2019, I was the recipient of the 2019 Gabriel Grüner Stipendium, alongside the writer and journalist Viktoria Morasch.

I am also one of the co-founders of Alento, where I photograph and write about food and relationships established around the table. And I own Grey Darkroom, a colour darkroom in Porto.
