I was born and grew up in Brazil. Photography invaded my life during my last years in college. 2002 was a special year. I had finished medical school and short after that I moved to the north of Brazil, where I lived for a whole year in the Amazonia region. On that same year I started a relationship with a Dutch girl. That love story ended up with me moving to The Netherlands the next year. Photography remained a great passion but it was not before 2015 when I decided to take it to the next level and started studying photography at the PhotoAcademy, in Amsterdam. Since then my approach became much more conceptual and I also discovered a new passion for portraiture and documentary photography.
Although my photographs have an undeniable aesthetic component to them, my main goal as a photographer is to evoke a strong emotion that touches the viewer on a deeper level. Photography is the medium I’ve chosen to express myself to the world and show the word the way I see it. Sometimes with great admiration and reverence, sometimes critically and engaged.
