Born in São Paulo, Brazil.
I am a photographer with a background in Biology and Landscape Ecology.
Photography is a relational practice, a space for learning and questioning. The camera is the mediating instrument of a physical, sensorial and intellectual contact with the world around me. The photographic process within my works does not seek to exhaust subjects but rather to raise possible meanings, to create worlds that move us away from a daily visibility of the city and enables us to look more closely. Photography helps me to be present and more connected to the world and myself, I am grateful for it.
Landscape Ecology seeks to identify the linkage of point phenomena, or small stories, with the broader perspective of the territory. I wish to better perceive this links, the links between seemingly unimportant structures and their deep connection to larger systems and our daily experience. Today I look at the city and its spaces because this is where I live and where my personal story is built. I still observe it, as I did when I walked in the woods.
