Mariana Caldas de Oliveira says about herself:
“I bought my first camera five years ago in a flea market. And I will never forget the magic that I felt when i got my first film developed. It was like finding my language. A way to say some things that are just to hard to explain in any other way, small sensations. since that day I’ve never stopped. and it feels like an endless adventure. It’s more than a passion, a therapy or a chosen career. Photography keeps my soul on fire.
I was born in Rio De Janeiro, but i grew up in a small town near the mountains called Nova Friburgo. Nine years ago, I moved to São Paulo to study journalism and I’m here since then. I’m 26.”
