My name Is Hugo Martins, I was born in São Paulo, Brazil 1978 and currently live in Salvador, Bahia in Brazil.
I have a Bachelors Degree in Graphic Design. While in school I also learned photography. Today I am an independent photographer. My sensibility is informed by both my experiences with photography and also as a graphic designer.
I started to photograph in 2004, and I found in photography and visual arts a way to express what I live daily in the environments that surround me. I believe that photography is the perfect way to store slices of the world’s realities, or realities that are created by the photographer's point of view. It is also, a way to express what the eyes cannot see physically, although the brain is processing all the time.
My work moves between street and documentary photography in Brazil, especially in Bahia (both the city and country side) which is today my hometown and my base for visual art creation using photography as my primary medium.
