About me
Rebeca Binda is a Brazilian documentary photographer, journalist, researcher, and curator currently based between Brazil and London. Her work is mostly focused on socio-environmental issues, climate justice and women stories.  She is a master in Photojournalism and Documentary Photography and dedicates herself to documenting the diverse realities that make up her homeland, Brazil. With her local insights and international experience, her goal is act a a bridge between South America and the Global North: on the one hand, amplifying Brazilian stories and issues on an international level; on the other, promoting local and hyperlocal initiatives, so that traditional and marginalised communities hold autonomy to tell their own stories.  In my storytelling, I strive to co-create with the participants of the narratives. I constantly work towards being aware of my privileges and to use them as best as I can to break cycles of systemic injustice. Over the past years, I’ve been learning and experiencing how to use photography, journalism and advocacy to do this.
  • Cairo
    CairoCairo is a city that never stops. Its liveliness can be noticed on the non-stop beeping, the intense amount of cars or people passing by the center and on its markets spread around the streets. All this verve can be even better admired through the private view at the highest point of the city, the Cairo Tower.
  • People&
    People&The truth is in the eyes.
    TOUCHThe hands interact with what we love. The touch replicates our traditions. Touch is to be in contact, is about interacting with what moves us and brings meaning to our lives. A bread, a pet. A fruit, a tree. In order to fully feel something, interacting through our senses is essential.
