Bárbara Montavon, was born in Parintins, an island located in the midst of the Brazilian Amazon forest, but grew up in the cold mountains of the municipality of Caxias do Sul, in the state of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil.
Although surrounded by literature, painting and embroidery, she graduated as a Bachelor in Tourism. She met photography in 2013, on a trip to Switzerland, where she dived within her own self, and rediscovered amid art. It began with a conceptual photograph and was soon being requested for lifestyle essays. For her each photograph expresses a story of itself, with beginning, middle and end.
