My name is Ivan Pires, I was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil and currently reside in Berlin.
My interest in photography sparked at a very early age thanks to my father who was a talented amateur photographer. I learned a lot of things from him and continued my studies later on.
My camera has been my constant fellow companion for as long as I can remember. Using mostly analogue techniques, I capture people and surroundings the way they naturally are in place and time, straight from my personal feeling of the moment. Over the years, photography became my index of memory.
