"I inherited my passion for photography from my father. Ever since I was a boy, I accompanied him in his work with great interest. When I was about eight years old and could reach the trays in the laboratory, I began to learn how to develop and enlarge my own photos. As a game, I'd take pictures of my sister, my cousins and the house, already revealing my eye for the details of the world around me. When I was 12, I won a photography contest sponsored by the neighborhood newspaper with a picture of the grillwork on a public building.

"I studied geology and I opted for a career in jewelry and gemology, distancing myself from photography. However the sleeping passion resurfaced in 2001 when, in the São Paulo Museum of Modern of Art, I participated in a four-month workshop on photographic language with photographer Gal Oppido.

"After that, I decided take it up again and have been taking photographs non-stop. At first, it seemed like a frenetic attempt to recover lost time. But I began to mature with interesting themes and an intense sensitivity. In my journeys I revisit nature, the architecture, people and customs of the most varied places. In the studio, my jeweler's awareness of detail transforms bodies and flowers. Quiet and observant, I increasingly demonstrate greater fluency in the language of the lens."
