Luisa Nolasco was born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Moved to the UK in search of new opportunities in arts and photography. Having studied Social Communications, she began taking pictures at the age of 16, after buying her first camera. As a documentary photographer, Luisa develops images that speak both to her and to others about what is happening out there in the world. She has a passion for getting to know different cultures and an obsession for photographing them. Part of her process before taking pictures is to observe people. Luisa wants to capture simple moments of the day to day life and traditions that sometimes seem to be forgotten or are not paid attention to.
Currently doing a MA in Documentary Photography and Photojournalism at the University of Westminster, in London.
