About my work
My photos were taken at the street carnival in Rio de Janeiro and in Rio's favelas. Most of my protagonists are black people.
I am from São Paulo but it happened to be in Rio de Janeiro that I became a photographer for theater plays, music and cinema festivals as well as still and travel photography. With my art I want to go against and show awareness of the black people mostly from the Brazilian peripheries.
