"Shooting is giving shape to my dreams. This is how Elza Cohen defines her relationship with photography, which began late in the eighties, after years of working as a cultural producer and music curator on the Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo axis. Today, photography is his main profession, living and working on the São Paulo, Minas Gerais and Rio de Janeiro bridges as demanded.

Fan of the works of director Sofia Coppola, Samira Makhmalbaf and the photographs Tomoko Sawada, Petra Colins and Shirin Neshat ... ..
