Ana Grangeia Neves, also known as Anita Lisboa, was born on October 9 in Lisbon, on what was a sunny Saturday afternoon .
She is a born entrepreneur, well-driven, gregarious and humorous person - especially after the second cup of espresso.
Throughout her happy existence she has traveled to 76 countries; in this continuous quest to seize every opportunity to discover new destinations she always returns to her beloved birth city.
The interest in Photography arrived early, as everything else in her Life.
Sparked by the enthusiasm of her godfather Douwens, a German engineer which was highly educated in Chemistry and Photography, it was in his lab located in the Beato neighbourhood that she first saw an enlarger and experienced the unforgettable magic of developing her own negatives.
At the age of 13 and after a full Summer spent working, she bought her first camera, a secon hand Canon AE-1 which she still keeps and uses.
After finishing her studies in finances and management at 21, Anita co-managed 4 companies and was actually involved in the foundation of 2.
After concluding the Phtography Course at ETIC , she won the Luís Lobato scholarship, which will support the development of a project about Love.
Unavoidably the passion overcame reason and she now devotes herself professionaly to Photography.
