About Me

I was born in 1974 and I spend my life between Imperia, Rio de Janeiro and Jazz. The analytical approach learned in the study of chemistry and pharmacy prompted me to summarize the research of the soul with the photographs. Studies and continuous insights moved the center of gravity of my existence in the world of photography, the constant element of my daily life. The dazzling meeting with Enzo Obiso, the diploma of the Academy of Fine Arts as well as explorations of the video art have contributed to a growing day by day continues today even after graduation in 2005 and the subsequent transfer to Rio. I still remember when, for the first time, Enzo showed me The hand of the man by Sebastião Salgado. There, I decided that my job and my passion would have coincided with photography! I worked for two years documenting the precocious health situation of the capital Carioca, investigated in many travel social reality through the eyes of children, a theme that I studied in Brazil with institutions that deal with Meninos de rua. From many years I work with jazz music, photographing the sound of live concerts and international festivals. I think that a part people feels excited about seeing my pictures because all my effort is devoted to capturing the soul, the heart of the people, the core of the sound in the case of Jazz, the immensity of the landscapes. My aim is to convey the uniqueness of that intimate lifeblood to shake the ‘soul of the beholder.

Why Jazz? The relationship between musician and instrument in the melodious improvisation is a magical combination, imponderable as visceral photographer musician because it is the only one to really feel the sacred fire of the instrument.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
