Ana Caroline de Lima is a Brazilian photographer, journalist and anthropologist whose work is focused on the documentation of cultural, social and environmental issues from an intimate perspective. Ana believes that empathy and photography should walk together (alongside with journalism and anthropology) as only with understanding and respect we can go towards a humanized and sensitive documentation.

 

Her work has been awarded both nationally and internationally and has been exhibited in more than 20 countries (see list below), in places such as NUMA, Getty Museum and Oxo Tower in London. Due to her commitment and ethics in photographing traditional communities, she has been nominated to Royal Photography Society 100 heroines in 2018.

Ana is a XXXIII Eddie Adams Workshop alumna and is a member of Women Photograph, Authority Collective and Everyday Brasil. After years working in Andean countries, she founded Everyday Andes in 2019, to build a community of photographers working in the region and showing the Andes without stereotypes. Amongst her main clients as an anthropologist and photographer are the UNDP, Amazon Conservation, ActionAid and Care International. Currently based in São Paulo, she is also HEFAT trained for exteme environments and it's available for assignments.

Ora, o SENHOR disse a Abrão: Sai-te da tua terra, da tua parentela e da casa de teu pai, para a terra que eu te mostrarei.
E far-te-ei uma grande nação, e abençoar-te-ei e engrandecerei o teu nome; e tu serás uma bênção.
E abençoarei os que te abençoarem, e amaldiçoarei os que te amaldiçoarem; e em ti serão benditas todas as famílias da terra.
Gênesis 12:1-3
