Juliana Piacesi Spinola is my full name. I was born in 1980 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Graduated at the Sao Paulo University of Fine Arts and began my career as a Graphic Designer working in a multinational company. In mid-2007 I left the corporate life and started to make the transition to photography, assisting several great studio photographers. Years have passed and now I work as a freelance photographer mostly with architecture, documental, photojournalism and corporate photos and videos. Part of my work is represented by some international news agencies and have been published in great vehicles such as The Guardian, New York Post, Das Magazin, The Oslo Times, Lonely Planet, Vice, The Telegraph, O Globo, Folha de Sao Paulo, among others. I also work at IIF (Instituto Internacional de Fotografia) teaching composition in the course of professional training. Besides portuguese I speak english and spanish. My objective is to drive my work into the documental sphere, by human, social and political subjects.
