Marina Nacamuli is a photographer and filmmaker who specializes in 35mm and video. Her work spans from fine art, fashion and lifestyle. After several years living in Brooklyn, NY, she is back to São Paulo, and since then explores her city. 

Nacamuli photographs people, or rather, her peers. The work itself consists of self-portraits of a joint experience in which the artist could easily take the place of the “model”, and in fact she does, as she is exposing her intimacy, the situations she lives in, and the places she permeates. She is usually attracted to subjects that involve women, street and sub-cultures, with a sensitive approach to abandonment.

She acts as the 'flâneur', the errant, walker and observer, creating a relationship of reciprocity and sharing; only a sensible and keen eye can capture singular moments with such depth. 

In 2017, she released her first photobook, “Roose”, that can be found at the archive of Instituto Moreira Salles.

Special thanks: to all my beautiful subjects.
