Carlos Moreira

Carlos Moreira was born in São Paulo in 1936. He graduated in economics in 1964. That same year he began to dedicate himself to photography. He photographes the city of São Paulo for more than 40 years now, thus his view on São Paulo is unique. His relationship with the city, revealed with the complicity of the equipment that always accompanies him (Leica), allows us to live the city a little, its inhabitants, its spaces and its life. His photography, always focused on a personal expression, also brings us a bit of the the city's life in the portraits, the interiors and the photos of people closest to him. Professor of photography since 1972, the study and teaching of photography became an extension of his personal work, forming several generations of photographers and photography teachers. He is currently leading study groups for young photographers and teaches regular photography language and history courses at M2 Studio, funded with Regina Martins in 1990.
