Editorial | Audubon Magazine

In november 2011 I went on a trip in south o Brazil to do a essay on Pampa`s Grasslands for Audubon Magazine through my agency based in New York, Novus Select. It was my first assignment to Audubon Magazine, after a visit in their office in 2011. It was a very rich experience to know a place so far in my own country and I could understand a little bit about organic meat in this very specific place in Rio Grande do Sul state. Get to know the nature, the beautiful landscape and how they keep that so intact. Great trip!!

The essay was published last december 2012.

Em novembro de 2011, fiz uma viagem para os pampas gaúchos no sul do Brasil para revista americana Audubon, através de minha agência baseada em Nova York, Novus Select. A matéria foi publicada 1 ano depois. Foi uma experiência incrível, conhecer um lugar tão distante e ter a oportunidade de conhecer um pouco daquela cultura dos Pampas, saber como é possível o pasto orgânico e consequentemente a carne orgânica. Sair em busca dos diferentes pássaros que só existem ali, justamente em função do tipo de pasto, foi uma viagem que valeu a pena cada situação. Paisagens lindas e ainda intactas.

Portfolio | Digital Photographer Magazine



A while ago a friend invited me to be part of Talento session of Digital Photographer Magazine. I was very honored to be part of this session, because is an opportunity to show and talk about my personal work. After a discussion about what work on photography  I should talk about, we decided to show my las one. All those "series" I produced during a Artist Residence in Fazenda Catuçaba, in a small village called Catuçaba. During a year I visited several times this place and get to know better the people living there. Was such as great experience.





Há uns meses atrás, um amigo me chamou para participar da sessão Talento na revista Digital Photographer Brasil. É uma super oportunidade para um fotógrafo ter o material impresso em uma revista que valoriza isso.  Resolvi então falar um pouco sobre meu trabalho mais recente, as séries realizadas durante uma residência de artista na Fazenda Catuçaba, localizada perto da pequena vila de Catuçaba, na região de São Luís do Paraitinga. Produzi essas imagens durante 1 ano, visitando a cidade, fazenda e moradores ao longo desse tempo. Deste projeto também surgiu um filme documentário média-metragem, realizado em conjunto com o diretor Bruno Jorge, confira o trailer CATUÇABA.

Editorial | Travel Assignment | Gol Magazine



 In a two days trip I went from São Paulo to the country side of Minas Gerais State to a travel photo shooting for a very short story on the oldest "alambique" (liquor mill) in Brazil, dated form the eighteenth century, called Engenho Boa Vista in a small town named Coronel Xavier Chaves. This assignment was for the Brazilian Gol Magazine.
Cachaça is a Brazilian liquor obtained from the dregs of molasses sugar cane and distilled after fermentation. The fermentation is obtained because of the wealth of sugar liquid.  This preserved by the by the National Historical and Artistic Heritage.
Here are some images that was not on the magazine also.
