“The waves of Nazaré” by André Botelho on display at the Municipal Gallery

4 January 2018

“As Ondas da Nazaré” is the theme of the photographic exhibition that André Botelho presents at the Paul Girol Municipal Gallery, from January 13th to February 10th.

The passion for photography began early, and the dedication to this art was affirmed with the consecration of Nazaré as one of the international big-wave spots, confirmed with the entry of the “world’s biggest surf ever surfed” in the Guiness Book of Records, in 2011.

“The dedication to photography is no longer a hobby to take on a more professional side, after the recognition of the great waves of Nazaré as the world stage of surfing, and that brought world visibility to my work,” said the photographer.

André Botelho has participated in international surfing events with the images he captures from the surfers’ show and the Nazaré waves show, having reached the finalist of the WSL – XXL Big Wave Awards, which distinguish the world’s biggest surfers (in the various categories of this sport) as well as the authors of the images of these adventures at sea in the last four editions.
