Marcelo Argolo, Brazil
I was born in 1969 in Rio de Janeiro, Brasil. Photography started for me as desire to travel, so in 1989 I moved to California, USA. While studying Photography at the City College of San Francisco, in 1991, I started taking B&W pictures in the streets - which opened my eyes to the wonders one may chance upon while walking in a city. However, it took me a few hiatus - the longest being 7 years - to realize that my life (and life itself) makes more sense when I take pictures. I got back in 2010, and the desire to travel - in my hometown or abroad - remains.
