Jose L. Amaral was born (1977) and raised in Luxembourg. After studying Window Display Design and Art, Jose travelled for years across Europe with a camcorder in its hands filming Techno Music Festivals before going to Asia and re-discovering his passion for Photography and Photojournalism. He started his first Journalistic experience in 2009 with a small Newspapers for the Portuguese community in Luxembourg where he documented from time to times the different activities of the Portuguese community.


During the past 7 years, Jose Lopes Amaral has been working on short and long term Video Projects and Photo Documentary projects such as “The Taiwanese Experience” and “The Underdogs” as well on Photojournalistic assignments.


His work is published in Die Welt, The Times, L'Express, Asia Times, MediaPart, South China Morning Post, The Wall Street Journal, DeLand, Chicago Tribune, Le Journal du Dimanche, and other News Medias around the World.


He is distributed by Hans Lucas and by NurPhoto at the international level.
