My name is Márcio Faustino and I was born in 1983 in Sao Paulo, Brazil. I stepped into photography field in Ireland and I am now based in Hamburg. My formal exhibition include: The Digital Darkroom in New Zealand (2010), Oisin Gallery in Ireland (2011/2012) and 'Art - Frisör' in Germany (2014). My publication credits include Oxfam clothes catalog and The Irish Mail on Sunday (2010), which featured a portrait of Michelle Massey, winner of the TV3 reality Series, 'The Apprentice'.
Thinking about the direction photography and art in a whole have being taking I try to return to “primitivism”. For it, I have shifted completely to Pinhole photography. Specially for landscape and portrait. I am in love with pinhole simplicity, its soft images and contact prints. It takes me back to photography essence.
