Photographer, artistically known as “Moskow”, was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on August 1st, 1971.
In his only 13 years of experience, he has already worked for several international publications, such as The New York Times and International Herald Tribune (USA); Leros Magazine and The Guardian (England); Rondo and Focus Magazine (Germany). In Brazil, major periodicals have also published his photos: Veja, Época, IstoÉ, Rolling Stone Brasil, Caras, and Contigo (magazines); O Globo, Jornal do Brasil, and Lance (newspapers).
He studied with photographer Walther Firmo, with whom he created a close bond of friendship, which led to professional exchanges. Over the years, Moskow has sought to develop copyrighted pieces without giving up journalism. He works in several areas: advertising, culture, daily life, politics, and sports, photographing leading Brazilian artists, politicians, and athletes.
Moskow is one of the Brazilian photographers who was most dedicated to covering the process for pacifying the slums of Rio de Janeiro, territories previously dominated by drug traffickers. His effort led to the book " A paz já tem seu lugar” (Peace has found its place, in a free translation), capturing images of the army and police raids which reflect the consequences of action on the local population.
