Presenting: Martinha Barreto
Hello guys! How are you?
My name is Martinha Barreto, I’m 21 years old, I’m a building technician and a civil engineering student. What does my studies have to do with photography? Nothing, but life took me this path. I am also an aspiring writer. I created my first text blog with 12 years in 2009 and until today day I keep it. I’m passionate about literature and fell in love with the art of photography. For me, picking up a pen and writing is being an artist. Also transforming what we see into feelings with a click.
By getting involved in this environment, I created a group on Facebook that today is one of the biggest related to photography in Brazil: Inxtalove. There we have 10,000 members talking about issues, lenses, equipment, lighting, feed organization, customer discussions and everything about the world of photography. There we learn a lot together and I want to bring a lot of it to this blog too.
I trully believe that knowledge is everything. If we can share this and be reciprocal, we are already gaining so much.
Oh, I almost forgot: I’m from the Northeast of Brazil, from a state called Paraíba and I love Sertanejo, a kind of Brazilian country music. I am a flamenco singer, a bullfighter and a fan of Machado de Assis. I am addicted to vintage editions, photogenic flowers and to seeing beauty in detail. Do not be surprised if you see gigantic legends with quotations from Brazilian literature. Poetry is part of me. I hope it’s a part of you too.
