Everyday Stories Whole lives in a fraction of a second.

My Photo scholarship 2010 entry

Brazil | Sunday, 17 October 2010 | 4 photos


When I was a teenager and started learning – and loving – photography with my father, I've always said that my dream job would be to be a National Geographic's photographer. Really.
Not a cop, a soccer player or an astronaut. I wanted to be a NatGeo photographer.
I couldn't imagine a better life than traveling around the globe through amazing locations to capture beautiful and meaningful images and stories to share with the whole world. Then I grew up.
And I still can't imagine anything greater than this unique opportunity.

I have a long time passion with photography and an urge to create great things. To touch and change people in a better way and to always keep on learning and improving what I do and who I am. And coincidentally everyone around me and our planet.

This place is called "Brique da Redenção" (Redemption Handicraft and Flea Market), a traditional fair that happens every sunday at Redemption Park in Porto Alegre, Brazil, with many street artists and tents selling handicraft and antique items.

My images tell a story about everyday stories. About a whole life in a fraction of a second. About a single moment of time that travels around the future and the past. This is real Photography for me. Something becoming in extinction nowadays, inside an ocean of automatic and meaningless pixels.

I know there are some incredible images out there at Bhutan waiting for me to capture and save them. Just for me.
So, that's what I need to go.
To free them to the world.

And to maybe someday make my childhood dream come true.
