Nica Paixão was born in Lisbon and raised in Almada. She has always liked photography because her grandfather was lucky to be a photographer since she was born. In her younger years she liked x-rays because they smelled like developer. She has 2 Irish children, 2 German Shepherds and a Podenga and 2 cats. Feels "transmontana" because the mountain is everything. More could be said, but it would be superfluous.
