An innovative Brazilian with a strong desire to share experiences, Cajueiro has extensive experience in documentary photography. Additionally, they became a cultural producer to express ideas and bring theoretical reflections to a tangible dimension.

Accustomed to living in diverse cultures and communicating with various people, Cajueiro is passionate about communication, multiculturalism, and the learning opportunities that arise from encounters with what is different. This passion has led them to reside in different countries and three continents.
With a Bachelor's degree in Communication Sciences from the University for Foreigners of Perugia (Italy), a degree in Political Science from the University of Manchester (UK), and a master’s degree in cultural management from Getúlio Vargas Foundation (Brazil), they are currently pursuing a PhD in photojournalism at the Autonomous University of Barcelona.

In 2014, Cajueiro founded an independent company with the aim of promoting culture through artist career management and cultural projects. Their images and projects are rich with expression and feeling, proposing reflections on the lives of others and the cultural differences that enrich our world.

In July 2019, they returned to Europe to develop a network with European cultural producers, aiming to give their projects a global dimension by learning from their stories and contributing through their own experiences. They are open to new partnerships with photo agencies for the production of photo reportages and cultural production in the audiovisual segment.
