I grew up in Brazil, 1983. Due to absence of both my parents I was raised by my grandparents and had to learn to take care of myself from a young age. The first 30 years of my life in my town, Fortaleza, which is a relatively poor area with very limited possibilities for people to build an economic life and for finding educational opportunities that would allow me to develop. I was completely lost and I didn’t know what I wished in life, then I moved to the Netherlands in 2014. I was suddenly given the opportunity to study professional photography. I never could have dreamt that this interest could also become a real profession.
My social background very much influences the person that I am today and how I develop as an artist. I am interested in real life, feelings that have been lost and that I’m looking for today in people around or that touch me. Documentary photography is the area that I am passionate about and I consider myself storyteller and visual conceptor.
