Mauricio Lima


He graduated with a degree in Communications from PUC University (1996-2001), in addition to photojournalism studies at Senac Institute, in 1998.

As a documentary photographer, he has focused his career on social issues that may turn into humanitarian crisis and daily life in the aftermath of hostile situations, in parallel of frequent contributions to The New York Times, among other clients.

He started his career as a trainee photographer in 1999 for a local sports newspaper in São Paulo, before being invited to join Agence France-Presse as a staff-contract for almost 11 years. He decided to work independently since early 2011.
