REDMILK LOVES OUT OF THE BOX MINDS! DISCOVER THE EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH RICARDO GOMES.
Who and how did you want to work in the entertainment industry?
I don’t see myself working in the “entertainment industry”, when I photograph, it comes from my own true self, I really feel it is the only thing I deeply love doing, for myself, and then to the others. When I was younger I started doing drama classes as an easier way to express or to find myself, it really worked, made me realize I wanted to put out my feelings somehow and create connections with other people. With photography I can still do that, without putting up a character, but finding that in other people, or transforming them with my own perspective.
Is there a place where you feel comfortable and what makes it special?
Deep inside, I know the place I belong is the beach, it is part of my biggest fantasies, and it is one of the only places that I really come down to myself and I can recharge completely. The contact with the ocean is the most precious thing, and that no one can take away from me.
Is there a theme or a cause you are passionate about?
There are many issues and causes I think about, wonder or I am just curious, politics, LGBT rights, environment, our future.
When you have a bad day and you’re not sure what to wear, what do you wear to feel comfortable and powerful?
never really felt that I’ve had an issue or thought too much of what I would be wearing, I don’t wear “uniform” style clothing, I don’t dress up for occasions in general, but I always end up wearing the same things, jeans, t-shirt or shirt, nice cashmere sweater, denim or leather jacket. I think that simplicity and owning clothes that go right with your body proportions are the most important thing you can ever wear. If you are aware of that, you are owning your place at the party (ahaha)
What is your morning ritual that keeps you sane?
Sane or insane? (ahaha) the one that keeps me sane is probably taking my time in the morning, nice shower, having a nice cup of coffee in the sun and a little walk after. The one that keeps me insane is probably waking up, watching a horror movie in the morning (which I love doing from time to time) and then get ready for my day.
From the four elements earth, fire, water and air to which you feel most related? And why?
I really think I relate with water. All the good energies come with it. I believe that water somehow cleans and purifies your soul, It is the last thing that should ever be taken away from us. No one owns it, no one really creates it, it’s such a pure thing
