The photographer Sílvio Vince Esgalha was born in Araçatuba - São Paulo state, but after 20 years living in Mato Grosso we already consider him a native.
He began his career in São Paulo as a graphic designer in 1972. After some experience in advertising, he became a well known art director working for some of the most important agencies in Brasil.
At that time, it was hard to get the images he needed for illustrating certain campaigns. So, Sílvio decided to produce his own photos. From then, he has never stopped shooting and both the photography and the graphic design became part of his life.
