Ricardo Ribeiro is a photographer based in São Paulo, Brazil. Having worked for 15 years as a lawyer, he dropped his practice in early 2015 and embraced photography as a profession. In 2016 he concluded the General Studies Program of the International Center of Photography in New York City. His current projects are an attempt to comprehend and express through images the character, the transformations and the struggles of the anonymous Brazilian of the interior, the one who is neither integrated to Brazilian organized society nor depicted in books as part of other notorious marginalized groups such as the “índios”, the “sertanejos” or the “favelas residents”. In his work, Ricardo also connects the transformations he investigates with the ones he experiments himself.
