I initially worked as a lawyer for a few years, but in 2003 I switched to photography and moved to London, where I got a masters degree in photojournalism and documentary photography at the London College of Communications. After more than 5 years in London, I chose to move back to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, my base ever since.
My work centres on social and human rights issues, immigration, migration, women and disability. I contribute to the main Brazilian and international media outlets, NGOs and other organisations.
My main clients include: Der Spiegel (Germany), D la Repubblica delle Donne (Italy), Newsweek (Japan), Dagsavisen (Norway), Mondadori (Italy), Folha de Sao Paulo (Brazil), Estado de Sao Paulo (Brazil), Veja magazine (Brazil), Action Aid (UK), Shelter (UK) and Mencap (UK).
Awards: Magenta Publishing of the Arts – Emerging Photographers 2007 (selected winner); Photo Espana 2007 – Descubrimientos (selected winner); PX3 Prix de la Photographie Paris 2007 (honorable mention).
I am available for international assignments such as reportage, NGO, portraiture and commercial photography and video, in Brazil or elsewhere in Latin America.
