About Paula Huven
I was born in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, in 1982; I am a photographer, artist and teacher. I used to live in Rio de Janeiro, where, between drifts and dives on Leme beach, I worked as a freelance photojournalist for the newspaper Folha de S. Paulo. I was an assistant of the artist Miguel Rio Branco, which led me to fertile wanderings along the tracks of Santa Tereza and the Araras Sierras. I have worked as a still photographer for some feature films and this have given me a chance to see what goes on between frames. Nowadays I’m a Visual Arts’ PhD student at Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais.
Among the exhibitions that I have participated, I highlight the collectives Hábitos, familia, propiedad privada y el archivo, Festival Internacional Foto Monumental at Peru (2018); Mulheres na Coleção MAR (Woman at the Rio’s Art Museum Collection), Museu de Arte do Rio (2019) and The Language of Memory, Photo Visa Festival at Russia (2015); as well as the individuals exhibitions Ravage at Galeria AM (Belo Horizonte, 2015) and Common Days at Festival do Fotografia Foto em Pauta ( Museu de Sant’Anna, Tiradentes, 2018).
