Keiny Andrade (Brazil)

Keiny Andrade graduated in Language and Literature, postgraduate in Communication and Arts, at SENAC University in São Paulo and holds a master’s degree in Science of Communication from Fernando Pessoa University, in Portugal. His photography is crossed by themes such as transitory, belonging, territory and landscape. He is interested in imaginary narratives, seeking the power of the experience in visualities.

He worked at the Brazilian newspaper Folha de S. Paulo as a photographer and deputy photo editor, and currently works as an independent photographer. About his project Breathless made during this pandemic, he wrote: “In 2020, at the beginning of my isolation in Brazil, I felt in a state of mental disorder unable to think about the future. The feelings of anguish, confusion, and suffocation took over my daily life as the news about Covid-19 came in. Locked up at home, I started to use the camera to try to find a way out and to re-signify the banal from my microcosm.

I started to look at my microcosm in an aseptic and also orderly way because everything outside was too confusing. For me, organizing what is inside involves looking poetically and meticulously at what is around me.”
