My interest for photography started early with my father and his collection of slides he took on his old Yashica, and it only grew stronger when bought myself a Minolta in High School. By the time I finally got into Graphic Design program and learned that great designers were also photographers — like Man Ray, László Moholy-Nagy, Alexander Rodchenko, and Dave McKean — I was already in love with Photography.
The hobby became first a part-time job between 1998 and 2004 (not in the Peter Parker way) to explore another passion of mine: Music. Then it later helped me to build my craft as a designer, specially in my Ethnography Studies. In this section, you’ll see some of my work as a freelance photographer covering major music festivals in Pernambuco as well as some of my sightings of cross-cultural awareness.
