Tia Maria do Céu hosts a grocery/coffee shop in a remote village in the North of Portugal. Her groceries/coffee shop ends up being the news' center in the village. She's the greatest story-teller and a very genuine person. What attracted me the most was her beauty and somehow the resemblance of a renaissance character. From time to time I visit this village. It has been a few years that I wanted to photograph her, and now, I've finally earned her trust to do it.
