“Sao Paulo, Brazil-based photographer Guilherme da Silva has been taking photographs since he was a teenager.
“I guess not much had changed at all since then,” he explains, “despite the fact that now I can make some
money out of it, but my interests and aspirations are all the same.” Finding subjects in his friends and people
he meets online, most of da Silva’s work features members of the LGBTQIA+ community. As a queer person
himself, developing his photographic process has been a journey of self-discovery—“it makes me want to
try and figure out a balance between my aesthetic and the message I want to send through my photography.”
He pours himself and his personality into his images, viewing each portrait he takes as a self-portrait of sorts.”
