About Theo Gould
Theo is an emerging English photographer born in London, now living in Lisbon. He originally read philosophy at the University of Reading and more recently photojournalism at Instituto Henry Agudelo in Colombia.
Studying philosophy for three years at undergraduate level, and two years prior to that whilst at school, has led to his passion for getting to the roots of issues. Understanding these feeds his intense desire to portray humans overcoming all odds, and even thriving in the face of adversity.
Now, through his social-street photography he critiques modern society through creative, yet natural imagery. His aim is simple - to show the good and beauty in humanity, no matter where it may lie.
His work has been published in The Guardian, El Mundo, Inter Magazine, Etaste Magazine, TRIP Mag, Dodho Magazine, Positive Magazine, Private Photo Review and Edge of Humanity Magazine.
He has received Honourable Mentions in The International Photographer of the Year Competition and also in the Henri Cartier-Bresson Passporte Prize and was one of the Winners in Life Framer's Street Photography Prize in 2017.
His favourite photographer is Malick Sidibé.
