I was born in Brazil and have studied Fine Art and Photography at London Met University (The Cass), I have had my work featured in a number of group and solo shows in the UK and abroad, published in UK and international magazines and received various awards, grants and residencies like Ian Parry Award, Portrait of Britain, Arts Council Grants among others. 

I am in love with other humans. I feel drawn to other peoples’ life stories. Through photo documentary and socially engaged projects, photography has always allowed me to interact with people and, through that, make meaning of my own story. I don’t try to be “invisible,” as I believe that it’s not possible to enter a situation in someone’s life with a camera and not transform that reality in some way. My images are very much a consequence of my encounters with my subjects, a record of the spoken and unspoken. An invitation to create together. For many years I have had the honour of being an All Change associate artist, creating various projects in partnership with different genre artists and varied communities.
