I am a photographer based in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Since 2005, I develop an authorial work in photography in paralel to my activities as a clinical psychologist and researcher.

My interest in this form of artistic expression arose from studies on practices of looking; my involvement with images, words and imagination took me to an intersection between photography and literature, working with images as narratives.

Body, dance (movement) and fragments are themes that are dear to me, and self portraiture is a significant exercise in my pathway in photography.

perhaps this is what death is: an absence of sound and image that envelops us, a clotted abyss where there is only suspension. no needs, no imperatives. maybe death is just stillness. and for a moment this thought calms me down.
