Since 2005, she has independently produced photographic series and publications on the representation of tradition, both in in Brazil and abroad.
The German born, Irish artist Benjamin de Búrca has a practice in the arts since 2000 where painting, photography and video are equally important in his work. Working in collaboration since 2011, they are interested in the space documentary and art both share. They live and work in Recife, Brazil.
