LUIZ MAXIMIANO   |   +55 11 98661-2020

I was born in Assis Chateaubriand, PR, Brazil. I studied Social Communication
at ESPM (Escola Superior de Propaganda & Marketing), in São Paulo,
and photography in Hawaii, New York and Amsterdam, where I lived
for seven years. 

During that time, I won the Canonprijs as new young talent of the year
in Holland, and photographed the war in Afghanistan, elections in Pakistan,
HIV crisis in Southern Africa and social unrest in Central America. 

I came back to Brazil in 2010 and since then I have been working for
major Brazilian and international publications, such as Time, Newsweek,
ESPN Magazine, Playboy, Der Spiegel, USA Today, Die Zeit,
The Wall Street Journal, Veja, Trip, Gol Airlines and many others.
