Martim Meirelles is an American photographer who lives and works in New York. Portuguese descent, Martim moves between the USA, Portugal and Mozambique. His photographic research documents human lives that live on the fringes of economic prosperity and share the same Portuguese linguistic origin. In his work, there is a focus on beauty, pain and joy, highlighting the artist's ability to approach each subject with a deep visual sensitivity.
Martim's photographs available here are the result of a one-year stay at the Madre Maria Clara orphanage in Mozambique in 2017 and also an artistic residency in Nazaré in 2014.
