It all started when I was the tourist . . .
I arrived in New York City in 2004 from a small town in Brazil. Though I had originally traveled here to study language, I ended up falling in love with the city’s imagery. I knew I had to stay.
Living in New York, I revel in the island’s energy and its enduring embrace of change. I am fascinated by the ability of a single place to mean so many different things to many different people.
As a photographer, I believe in the possibility represented in city lights. Not a day goes by that I don’t snap a new city sight. The Foreign View is my embrace of NYC and an opportunity to capture what this urban landscape means to you.
