About me

I am a Brazilian-American photographer based in New York. My work focuses on different cultures, environmental issues, and social change. I believe in the power of photography to change lives. What most fascinates me as a photographer is to have the power to show people something they've never seen before for the first time. I often find these things in life's simple moments.

The way I capture moments represents the way how I was raised, learning to respect nature and its magnitude. Being raised in this environment gave me the power to see life in a different way, and it empowered my photography with the beauty of simplicity.  

The art of capturing moments has the power to transport people to a different place and time. It's about bringing the unknown to those who could not be part of that specific time in space.
