I am a Brazilian photographer born in Tubarão (Santa Catarina), with background in philosophy and music. In 1999 I studied music at London Music School.

In 2004 I completed the Bachelor Degree in philosophy at the Federal University of Paraná (Curitiba/Brazil). At the same university I took the Master Degree in Philosophy in 2006.
The concern with the temporal aspect of representation entered the horizon of my photographic works as a consequence of my Ph.D. research (started in 2007 at the Federal University of São Carlos - Brazil), on the role of the analysis of time in the work of Ludwig Wittgenstein. My current woks can be seeing as a consequence of my interest in the contemporary philosophy of time and its bearing on photography.
