Description

If I could frame myself in words, 'timeless' would be how I see the world. And at the same time, I'm also an impatient person who loves to be alone. Alone in contemplation, or alone with a camera. But it is also hard to describe myself. I studied journalism and I started my career as a photojournalist. I loved the idea of being an observer and of being able to document the world from my point of view. I worked for newspapers for ten years in my native Brazil. Then I left, exhausted by the problematic social surroundings I was witnessing. So I started to create my own stories and my own narratives. Nature is often present in my work. Light and shadows atract me. My life has always been nomadic since I was a child in which I lived in many houses in many cities and as an adult in different countries. Through my photo series I investigate what is important for me and what I choose to believe. The photos are a document of my search for places of peace, the beauty of the things I find, and about the yearning that goes along with that.
