Photography has always been a large part of my life but I became a professional photographer only after having tried different studies (engineering), jobs (electrical maintenance) and pursued different dreams (being an airplane pilot). I worked for a newspaper of the largest media group in Brazil until I slowly moved from news to documentary. I am now an independent photographer based in Brazil, focusing on social inequality, environmental, gender and violation of human rights. Since last October I've been articulating a Brazilian league of Women Image Makers. The name is YVY, in Tupi Brazilian Indigenous language and means Land. I am experiencing 22 months without having a house traveling wherever Photography takes me. I kindly invite you to visit my "houses" in the past months.
