Letter of recommendation for Ana Marta

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am writing this letter of recommendation for Ana Marta. I have known Ana Marta for nine years since we both attended the same Professional Photography

course. For the past year I have had the opportunity to accompany her work in my capacity as a teacher for the Photography Department at ESTT. I lectured

her in Digital Printing and Color Management, both in which she succeeded with a very sharp and vivid academic participation. She graduated in July 2011 and

we have kept in touch since then.

For as long as I’ve known Ana, she has always demonstrated an enormous curiosity, commitment to learning and a willingness to engage with creative practice through a documentary approach. During my classes she overcame all the technical skills and also applied them to the core of her work: human right issues, society and its social subjects.

Although a lecturer, I am also an active creative practitioner and a PhD student.

I have always seen in Ana Marta a great potential to be an active voice, while working in the field of documentary photography, so I am delighted to know she

is applying for the Magnum Foundation Scholarship. Ana is very good at keeping deadlines and time management. She structured her final portfolio admirably and achieved a high-level mark.

Ana Marta’s point of view is exquisite and increasingly thought provoking. She also has a very strong personality, is able to work independently and is a natural

born communicator with a persuasive voice and a friendly gesture. She is also enthusiastic, thoughtful, creative and highly motivated. Ana was a great asset to the ESTT, mobilizing her colleagues to protest, to form a Photography Union, go on field trips and start weekly night discussions about photography. I have no hesitation in recommending her for this Scholarship and am available for any other further information about her.

Yours faithfully,


Sofia Silva

assistant lecturer

Letter of Recommendation

To whom it may concern, I hereby acknowledge and attest the qualities that Ana Marta showed as my student, while in the Photography Course at the Instituto Politécnico de Tomar (Polytechnic Institute of Tomar).

I was her teacher during the three years of the degree and from the beginning I realized the commitment, maturity and curiosity; attributes that she prominently possessed. Throughout the course she has always shown the ability to apply theory and practice in very solid projects, hear criticism without fading and maintain a constant activity beyond what was strictly required. I wish to highlight the participation in the project “Imagens da República” ( and the revitalization of Núcleo da Fotografia (,

where she proved indispensable for the functioning and organization of activities: guided tours, conferences and student support. Best regards,

Valter Ventura
