Claudia Jaguaribe

Claudia Jaguaribe was born in Rio de Janeiro, 1955. Lives and works between São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro.

She holds a degree in art history, fine arts and photography from Boston University, USA. Her work is focused on the urban landscape, environmental issues , and questions directed to the representation of the real as a conceptual register. By blending reality and subjectivity, it stimulates our perception of what we are seeing by creating layers of understanding and narrative. The materiality of her works questions the very nature of photography. She expands the traditional formats of photography by creating photo sculptures besides integrating and using video and internet in her installations. Since her beginning she was linked to editorial research. Many of her series find their final expression in book format. She has 13 books published and recognized by the singularity of the photographic integration and graphic design. In 2013 she founded the publishing company Editora Madalena in association with Claudi Carreras and Iatã Cannabrava. Her works are in several museums and collections in Brazil and abroad an such as Museum of Modern Art / SP, Inhotim – Institute of Contemporary Art / Brumadinho, Maison Européene de la Photographie/Paris, Instituto Italo Latino Americano/Rome among others.
