I am a Brazilian conceptual photographer, working in several disciplines. I work primarily with staged photography, exploring themes circulating identity. Often experimenting in self-portraiture, I explore the construction of gender and gender roles, national identity, and identity politics. My pieces question reality through construction and staging while aiming to illustrate concepts that often don't have a visual identity attached to them.
Throughout my photographic practice, I try to push my own concept of identity while creating visually striking images. Though I primarily work in photography, my work defies a specific medium, opting instead for the best medium in order to convey my concept.
