Isaura Xavier de Campos

Excerpt from site: Was born in Porto, Portugal with that ability to draw since a young age. However my career was made in another way- I was a teacher of English for 35 years.

He then combined his individual images into large collage grids, grouped by location. Now, in his most recent series, he has returned to his home country of Portugal to capture over 3,200 charming, colorful windows, from 100 locations. From these images he has made more than one hundred new collages.
