What does your perfect day involve? A day that I spend taking pictures, smoking and drinking with my friends… or alone reading a good book. Or having sex and eating ice cream.
Who would you most like to meet, dead or alive? I’d really like to meet Donna Tartt, she wrote two of my favourite books and I’d love to have a conversation with her.
Are you normally early or late? Being Brazilian I’d say being late is part of who I am, but living in London I try to be as punctual as I can otherwise everyone would hate me.
If you had to live with any historical figure for a month, who would you choose? I’d love to wake up for a month having Chet Baker playing in my living room.
Money or fame? Money.
Your greatest fear? My greatest fear is to be afraid of life; to be so afraid that I would stop taking risks and challenging myself.
Favourite book? Have a few, but the last one I read was the Goldfinch by Donna Tartt and it really made an impression on me.
Tea or coffee? Mate leão!
Do you carry a camera everywhere? Yes, I recently bought a small analog camera that fits in my handbag so I can stop taking pictures on my iPhone when I go out.
Do you picture a photo before you take it, or just shoot? Sometimes if it is a specific shoot, but I usually go by instinct and just shoot.
Who do you most admire? I admire people who are not afraid to be who they are, to expose themselves and their fears.
What did you want to be when you were younger? I wanted to be a fashion designer, but then I realised I didn’t felt like dealing with the fashion industry since I love eating and being nice to people (sometimes at least).
What would you like to have accomplished within the next year? I want to travel to new places and to make new friends along the way. Also to start a lot of projects that I haven’t been able to put in practice.
