about me

What brought me to photography…

Art has been close to me since long time.

My grandpa was the type of man who transformed ideas into reality. He was a very skilful carpenter that, back in the 50’s in the heart of Brazil’s country side, built a camera, photographed and developed his own images, really significant pictures. This historic fact of mine has inspired me.

Like him, I find in photography my way to reveal stories.

The years spent overseas, acting as a Vice Consul (Sydney 2004-2009, Cape Town 2009-2012 and Los Angeles since 2016), have opened many doors to develop my art.
