Janssem Cardoso came from the interior of the Amazon to establish himself as a multitalented photographer in São Paulo, after having accumulated experience with graphical design and ad agencies throughout his career.
“I use to say that photography has brought me closer to people, serving as a way for me to learn about each person’s universe. My work is a reflex of where I came from and of everything I’ve lived and experienced. I try to convey sentiment and truth, and through that honesty, develop empathy with the spectator. I started the Other Colours Project in order to appease my interest in the artistic nude.” — Janssem Cardoso
