I live and work in São Paulo. Since 2010 my photographic work has explored the position of my own body in relation to the architecture and landscape of urban centers. I prefer symbolic and modernist constructions.
A former professional skateboarder and self-taught photographer, I like to portray myself in movement, capturing the climax of maneuvers within previously planned compositions, using a remote control to shoot the camera. My performative accuracy goes sometimes in harmony, sometimes in disarray, with architectural forms, resulting in geometric images, drawn by a magnificent play of light and shadows.
I shoot mainly in black and white, making single prints. I’ve twice been the recipient of the Banco do Espírito Santo/Shopping Iguatemi Acquisition Award (2012-2013) and once the recipient of the MASP Pirelli Acquisition Award (2013).
Recent exhibitions include Deslize (Rio Art Museum – MAR, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 2013-2014), Love and Hate to Lygia Clark (Zacheta National Gallery of Art, Warsaw, Poland, 2013-2014), Photo Biennial MASP (São Paulo Art Museum – MASP, São Paulo, Brazil, 2013), and Arte Contemporânea Brasileira (Estação Pinacoteca, São Paulo, Brazil, 2012). I had my first solo exhibition, AUTOCONTROLE, at LOGO gallery, in June 2014, in São Paulo.
