Maria Clara Pereira

Maria Clara Pereira was born in Madeira Island – Portugal.
 
She holds a five-year degree in Communication Design/Graphic Arts from the Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of Oporto (FBAUP).
 
After her graduation, and several years working as graphic designer, she moved to New York where she graduated from the International Center of Photography (ICP) with a One-Year Certificate in General Studies. She continued acquiring knowledge by interning with North American photographer Mary Ellen Mark.
 
Her work explores two different sides, one more conceptual and intimate, and the other more documental, for which she looks inside the world, streets, cultures and people.
 
Her work has been exhibited in New York City, where she currently lives and works.
