Aline Macedo
Photography
From Rio de Janeiro. In love with the power of images and words: it’s with these elements that she designs worlds and creates bridges. A photographer, researcher and educator of the eye, her projects encourage the force of that which is organic and cyclical. Her focus lies in the awakening of the feminine and in the regard for nature’s own rhythm. Being and reflecting potency is what she does with the biggest enthusiasm. Maidenhair and laceleaf are her favourite plants.
