I was born in 1970 in Belo Horizonte, and I have a bachelor’s degree in Communication from PUC – MG. I started as a photographer in 1983, and since then, I’ve had photography as my trade and form of expression, connecting myself through the affective forces, the movement they provoke and how it talks to the issues and tensions of contemporary life.

I match diverse artistic practices, mixing photography, video, writing and sound art.

Since an early age I’ve been interested in observing the world and History through the woman’s perspective. My work has had this feminine bias for over 30 years.

I’m not a voyeur and I’m not interested in simply casting my views onto people. I search for the encounter, for the network of interactions and affections it generates. The image, for me, is always a construction together with the person being photographed. I listen to their stories, their most intimate pains, and desires. That is only possible within the space of familiarity. That is the space that actually interests me.

Some of my work:
