My name is Flavia Schaller and I live in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Photography is a passion since childhood. My first experiences with photography came at the age of 8, when my parents gave me an Olympus Trip 35 which I still have with me. Years later, I got and old Rolleiflex from my uncle who was a photographer. Since then, I’ve been working with film for fine art photography, using medium and large format cameras, including homemade pinholes. I make my own black & white prints at home using traditional darkroom techniques.
I love classic and old movies, old songs and vintage things, cooking, reading good books and going out. I also love dogs. I have a dog named Nikita.
