Consultation in photographic projects

I assist photographers looking for personal and relevant themes in the area of documentary photography. I research references, develop photographic scripts and follow the production of the work through the final editing of the images.

 

Works of art captured at Operação Lava-Jato (Car-Wash Operation – a corruption investigation) became an exhibition at the Oscar Niemeyer Museum in Curitiba.  

I proposed this story to photographer Marcio Pimenta, who is based in Curitiba. I developed a photographic script with references and suggestions of images. Once completed, Marcio offered the report to BBC Brasil, where it was published.

Photo editing

Working with photography implies making a series of technical and interpretive decisions. There are so many choices that a photographer must make, that, at some point in the process, an editor is a fundamental figure. I edit images for various purposes: 

  • portfolio presentations

  • professional sites

  • reporting and personal projects 

  • competitions, awards and grants 

  • books 

  • exhibitions, etc. 

Photo editing for the Leitos project by Martim Passos, for participation in the Programa Nascente, 2016 edition.  The Nascente aims to reveal new artistic talent through a competition open to undergraduates and graduate students of the University of São Paulo.

I am available for lectures and workshops on creating and editing photographic narratives. Some of the festivals and institutions where I have presented lectures include: PhotoImage Brasil, Paraty em Foco, Foto em Pauta, Festival Hercule Florence, as well as, Ímã Foto Galeria, Casa do Saber Rio, and Grupo Luminous de Fotografia.

Photo exhibitions

I analyze the body of photographic work of the artist, proposing cuts and themes as well as editing the images for exhibition. I create the layout of the walls and the printed material (catalogues, invitations, etc.)
