Currently works between London, Berlin and São Paulo.

 

Born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Fernanda moved to London in 2013 to complete her foundation degree at the University of the Arts. Having received a distinction, and a Best in Show award for her work 'FFF', Fernanda has continued her education at the London College of Communication, where she graduated with High Class Honours her BA degree in Photography.

She is currently getting her MA in Photography at the Royal College of Art.

 

Growing up in Rio de Janeiro, she was surrounded by the rain forest and the beach whilst also living within a chaotic metropolitan city; this contrast between the natural and man-made world is a recurring theme that she explores in her work. Her photographs, videos and collages invites the viewer to immerse itself in the constructed realities that they offer. 
From forests and waterfalls, to human bodies and surreal settings: her work is an attempt to understand our relationship to the ever-shifting environments in which we live. A study to explore post-colonial roles and experiences of people of colour, women and LGBTQ+ people in the twenty-first century.
