I was born and grew up in Brazil. Photography invaded my life during my last years in college when I started playing around with a new camera my father has just bought. After some time I was using that camera much more than he did and shortly after that I realized I needed to upgrade to a camera that would give me total control over all the settings… and the rest is history.
In 2003 I moved to the Netherlands. Photography remained a great passion but it was not before 2015 when I decided to take it to the next level. I started studying photography at the Photo Academy, in Amsterdam. This opened my mind for new creative possibilities I had never tried before. My approach became much more conceptual and I also discovered a new passion for portraiture and documentary photography.
Although my photographs have an undeniable aesthetic component to them, my main goal as a photographer is to evoke a strong emotion that touches the viewer on a deeper level. Photography is the medium I’ve chosen to express myself to the world and show the word the way I see it. Sometimes with great admiration and reverence, sometimes critically and engaged.
