WHO WE ARE
ARCA is a new concept in interior design. A creative project that bridges you to living stories told by migrant women through fine art photography. In Portuguese, ARCA is a treasure chest that holds something very dear and precious. It brings you universal sentiments of longing, affection, and the search for a dream. A collection of haunting and lovely tales portrayed on wall art.
The Concrete World
The beauty in sites of contrast. Details of playful geometric shapes that allure you in the dwelling of daydreaming and reality.
The garden as a metaphor for the inner spaces of intimacy. Home is the commonplace of peace, well-being and creativity in every culture.
Body as the home we worship. Stories of self-love, appreciation, and pride bring emotions to the surface.
Feelings that cross the thresholds of imagination translated through colours, rhythms, and visions.
MEET THE PHOTOGRAPHERS
“Before ARCA, I’d never touched a photography
camera. To be honest, It had never crossed my
mind that someone would pay me to learn how to
take pictures. I am so happy with the results of my
work and see them hanging overseas! I want to be
a professional photographer in the future and visit
my family in Haiti soon."
- Ruth from Haiti
“Now I know how to use the camera and this
learning will continue with me in my life, thanks
to the project. My biggest dream... is to bring my
son who is waiting for me in Cuba. I feel that now
I will be able to accomplish it through my work.”
- Neirys from Cuba
