I met João, a medical student from North Portugal who was once a national swimming champion, on my second day in Lisbon and he was the first guy I photographed. It was some kind of record low for temperature that day; I believe it was 5°C. Compared to the minus awful I come from in Toronto, it was nothing!.. even though the news station playing in João's living room begged to differ. It didn't stop us from taking the shoot up to his rooftop, where I fell in love even more with Lisbon and it's beauty.
