About Bender

Bender is carioca from Tijuca and has deep roots in Rio de Janeiro suburbs. He has a degree in Moviemaking from PUC – Rio, studied Photography at EAV – Parque Lage and finished his studies in Fine Arts and Film Directing at VIGO University (Spain). Bender has found in photography and in audiovisual arts a breeding ground to explore his sensibility as well as his particular vision of the city and its inhabitants. He sees the city as an extension of home. He has always been charmed by the streets and even more so by the people he found on the street – a place that draws people together but also sends them different ways, a place for ongoing disputes. His work consists of unveiling the city, its backstreets, its alleys and its inhabitants to find the micro stories inside the urbe. The city architecture and its inhabitants play the main role in his work.
