Mauro Pinto

Born in 1974, lives and works in Maputo, Mozambique.

In the early 1990s, Mauro Pinto studied photography at Monitor International School in Johannesburg and during this period he made a internship with the photographer José Machato. Then, he moved to Maputo where he worked next to the pioneer of photojournalism in Mozambique, Ricardo Rangel and where he will be placed next to the Norwegian photographer Trygve Bolstad or Karl Kugel from Reunion Island.

Mauro Pinto interrogates the visual creation, information and communication. His works capture the essence of space thanks to a clever play with contrasts that can be seen provocative. Today, his work makes him one of the most recognized contemporary photographers of Mozambique.
