Adriane de Souza is a Brazilian photographer currently based in Doha, Qatar. She received her BA degree in Social Sciences from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ).

Adriane has been selected by Adobe as a part of Adobe Rising Stars in 2019, featured in PH Museum Mobile Photography Book, won second place and was book cover for Photos from the Arab World by Jotun, and won third place in the single image category on Lens Culture Journeys 2020. She was also part of the jury of the Single image Awards in Tasweer Photo Festival 2021.
Adriane works as a facilitator in several educational projects, reflecting on freedom and encouraging others to search for their path through photography.
Her work has been exhibited in several locations such as Brazil, Qatar, Russia, UAE, and United Kingdom.
Adriane has two ongoing projects. “I am not my father”, where she explores concepts of masculinity and “Qawiya” (قوية) which means strong, where she explores the presence and importance of women in various sports in Qatar.
