Ricardo is a Brazilian-Italian art, portrait and fashion photographer based in Tokyo.
Coming from a family of avid painters, he first grew up in Rio de Janeiro drawing colorful cars with his cousin, while his uncle painted hyper-realistic conceptual portraits in the next room.
From his early to late teens, Ricardo moved to Bogotá, Geneva, Brussels, Bonn and Berlin, getting into different pop-cultures that were trending in each country; Belgian comics, 90s Japanese anime dubbed in French, German MTV...
Life abroad helped him see Art as an international language that everyone spoke.
His passion for photography began after moving to Japan in 2006. Ricardo immediately fell in love with the country's attention to beauty in every detail, but also with the free-minded abstract works of late '60's "Provoke" photographers who shared the idea; "One can capture what cannot be expressed in words".
Ricardo graduated in Arts at Temple University Japan in 2014, specializing in Photography and Film Making, and MBA at Globis University in 2017.
He currently enjoys photography on spare-time, working with artists from different creative talents, and organizing group exhibits.
