Tell a bit about yourself
I'm a 24 year old, living in Brazil with a degree in Photography. I'm interested in personal projects as much as fashion shoots. My boyfriend is also a photographer and we work together on fashion photography and video projects. We also run an online photography fanzine.
What inspired you to begin with photography?
As a teenager, photography was the only thing that inspired me. Thinking about those days, I really discovered the whole meaning of "inspiration" when I picked up my first compact camera. There's really nothing else that I love in that way.
If you had to describe your work in three words, what would they be?
Feminine, delicate and unpretentious.
Flowers are a reoccurring theme in your work. Is that a conscious choice?
Flowers, plants and nature are a big passion of mine. Specifically, living in a big city after growing up in a smaller city with easy access to amazing spots of nature. I really miss it. Even unconsciously, I often find myself including some green, flowers or wood in my images.
What do you want people to feel when they look at your photography?
It's not exactly a feeling. I look for all kinds of beauty in front of me. Light. Freedom. Love.
I'm a huge fan of "simple but extraordinary."
What does wild mean to you?
The naked and truly interior.
