Photographer; lives and works in São Paulo. She spent a year in Tokyo, Japan, before embarking on a career as a photojournalist for the newspaper Folha de S. Paulo, at age 21. She later collaborated with the O Estado de São Paulo newspaper and Veja magazine, among other outlets. From 1994 onwards she developed authorial work, beginning with the Rosas series, using Polaroid SX70, exhibited at the São Paulo State Art Gallery (Pinacoteca). In 2003 she featured in the Prosas exhibition, at Galeria Monica Filgueiras, alongside the artist Paulo Von Poser. Persistently exploring the theme of flowers, she manages to produce different outcomes from one single, simple object, through the interaction between her chosen language (photography or even scanning) and the characteristics of the subject being photographed or recorded. She has also directed two documentaries: Maiakóvski, on the Russian poet; and Sato, on the Japanese immigrant to Brazil Kan Ichi Sato. She graduated in Language and Literature from the Pontifical Catholic University of São Paulo in 1989. She is a collaborator with France’s Libération, Belgium’s Le Soir and Switzerland’s Le Temps newspapers.
