One of my photographs taken in Complexo do Alemão was published in the Journal Periferias to illustrate the article “Catalytic Communities: The Role of the Peripheries in Democracy” by Luisa Fenizola.


I took this image in Complexo do Alemão’s Central Avenue on May 27, 2018 as dancers, poets, and rappers convened to celebrate the one year anniversary of Slam Laje, Alemão’s first poetry slam.

Work in progress in Charleroi, Belgium.

I am working on a new series: “Pays Noir“

In 2008, a survey of the Dutch newspaper 'De Volkskrant' cited Charleroi as the ugliest place in the world. This former mining town in southern Belgium was the center of a vast coalfield, now completely abandoned, formerly known as ‘Pays Noir’. Since its decline, the city has often suffered a very bad reputation in Belgium and elsewhere.

The intention of this photo series is to give a more accurate and realistic vision of this city. The aim is to show new points of view on the industrial and natural landscape, the architecture and the inhabitants of this city that is full of poetic and unknown places. Without taking part in the debate on the beauty of Charleroi, these photos will give reading keys to understand better this unique city in the world.
