I was born in Recife, Brazil, in 1985. It was in 2006, during my degree in Communication, that I began to learn photography techniques and Socialdarkroom practice. Later on, I went to work as a photojournalist at the ‘Jornal do Commércio’, a leading regional newspaper based in my hometown. After two years developing my practice in the newspaper, I decided to move to London to do a BTEC in photography and work as a Portrait photographer. Last year, I worked as a photographic technician at the Catholic University of Pernambuco, in Brazil and completed an amount of freelance work including album covers,book projects, film stills and fashion shoots. Nowadays, I am a freelance photographer based in London – working mainly with documentary projects and portraits. I am also working in the Chinese Oral History Project – To portray the ‘faces’ of Chinatown’s history has been thoughtful and inspiring, an experience which evokes fascinating memories and life-stories.
