About Ana Crisostomo
My academic background includes a 4-year Bachelor's Degree in Communication and the attendance of the 1st year of a Master’s Degree in Communication, Culture and Information Technology. I have, however, the greatest excuse for this ‘non-completion’: I relocated from Portugal to the Netherlands amidst my educational adventure. My professional experience has been gathered in several industries within the private and public sectors, the commercial and non-profit spheres, and has been mainly focused on web content management and web project coordination. In parallel to the more ‘serious matters’, a lot of my time revolves around independent and alternative music. I also like interior design and several forms of contemporary urban art. I dislike cooking and writing on the 3rd person.


Philosophy of Photography

Published in 1983, “Towards a Philosophy of Photography” presents Vilem Flusser’s (historical) reasoning for the establishment of a philosophy of photography in a peculiar style which refuses references to other authors and introduces his own specific lexicon.

The following presentation is a visual interpretation of the main concepts exposed in four out of the nine chapters of the referred book.
