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

Born in São Paulo, Brazil, Ana Caroline de Lima is a journalist, post graduate in anthropology and documentary photographer, whose work is focused on the human condition. She believes that cultural and social immersion plays a crucial role in the documentary process and this lead her to live and work in communities such as the Rajasthani in India, the Quechua in Ecuador and Peru, the Bçlack Hmong in Vietnam and many indigenous communities in Brazil such as the Rikbaktsa, Yawalapiti and Xavante.

 

Her work has been exhibited in more than 15 countries, in places such as the Getty Museum and Oxo Tower in London. 

Ana is a member of Women Photograph and Everyday Brazil and founder of Everyday Andes. Amongst her main clients as an anthropologist and photographer are the UNDP, Care International and ActionAid. 

 

“In times where people are focusing on differences rather than similarities,  I believe it’s important to keep in mind that we are all human beings. We share similar necessities, dreams, struggles and joy. It’s all adapted to our cultures, backgrounds and personalities, of course. But if you look closer, you’ll notice that regardless of who you are or where you’re from, you’re not better than anyone. You’re not worse than anyone. You just are.” - Ana Caroline de Lima
