Photography has always matched with all my passions, all my choices, and curiosities. It has always been my best excuse - excuse to be there, to go, to tell, to listen, to come back, to know more or to be just a memory. It has made me think, look, remember, pause (...)It all started, a while ago, when I used to get borrowed my dad's camera secretly when I was a teenager.  Later on, this passion evolved into my bachelor's degree in Photography by Senac University.  Professionally, my career started as a photojournalist freelancer and since then I've been working with news agencies, newspapers and press offices. In 2011 I moved to Paris to study Photojournalism at Speos Paris Photographic Institute. Nowadays, I'm living between Brazil and Europe, and aside from being a photojournalist, I'm also working with travel, documentary and fine-art photography, where I explore the aesthetics and the poetics of images, together with its social context.

Statement of purpose

Life has completely changed this last year. From moving back to my hometown and be forced to stay even though that was out of the question. So it is odd to think and talk about it these days, where the real priority is to keep me safe and the people around me safe. 

During this pandemic, many things got reinforced, one of them is how I believe in the work I do, and how much I really want to make a difference, using photography to help and contribute with as many people as possible. For sure, it sounds poetic, utopic, and a bit naïve, but that’s part of also who I am.

My main goals, in a short term, nowadays, are to continue to work as a photographer and have a good flow of jobs coming in, to keep improving my skills, and to get more visibility and opportunities to produce relevant content.

I believe these are the smalls steps that will lead me to my real and long-term goal – to be the best photographer I can be, to make my work relevant, and to make a living out of it. So I can completely dedicate myself to it. 

Even though it’s been a long and hard way, photography still keeps me motivated. For seeing myself improving, but most of all, for seeing and receiving feedback about how my work affects others is what I need to keep doing what I do. That makes all the sacrifices worth it.

As a Latin American women photographer, I had experienced some rough paths in photography because of who I am. Since I’ve started to work as a photographer, I try to help out as much as I can, as I appreciated all the helped I have received during my journey. Cause I strongly believe together we can go further and make a difference, even if today we are the minority in this market. My belief goes hand and hand with the proposal of Native agency, in my opinion, to make the minority's voice stand out in the world. During this last year, I helped the Journal, a collective of which I am part of, to participate in an exhibition in São Paulo, Brazil, focusing to give space especially for those who have fewer opportunities and that was a life-changing experience for me, not only as a photographer (cause of the challenge of curating it) but also to give this space to others photographers letting their work spread into the world. 

Therefore, join the Native agency will help me, much more as I can describe here. I believe that will add up in my career, helping me build a stronger network, also I truly ache for the tools and feedbacks that will improve my practice and skills making me achieve my dreams and goals. And as I said before, I do believe in the power of the collective, I am not only looking forward to what this opportunity can give me, but also, to contribute to all as much as I can.
