Ricardo Abrahao by Andrew Kovalev
I was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil in 1987.
I studied industrial design and got the chance to work with big names such as Claudia Moreira Salles and the Campana brothers, which allowed me to develop my creative side in many areas of designing: products, graphic, packaging, scenography, furniture and interior design.
The first time I realized photography was my true passion was when I hit the road in 2010 and went backpacking around Asia by myself for 8 months. I wanted to tell the stories of all the amazing places and people I met in my journey, so I started taking pictures to document everything that was happening around me.
Coming back to Brazil I decided to take photography to another level so I enrolled in Speos Photography Institute in Paris and specialized my education in studio, fashion and portrait photography.
Nowadays I live and work in Paris.
