Brazilian Photographer (born in 1969). Graduated in Professional Photography from SENAC (Brazil, 2014) and Narrative Photography Course at the International School of Photography GRISART (Barcelona, 2018). Flavio Edreira worked as a freelance photographer in Brazil until the second semester of 2017, when he moved to Barcelona (Spain), where he began to carry out documentary and personal projects with Photography. He also became member of the Photography Collective called VEO (Barcelona, 2018).
His work is based on his personal interactions with the world and the environment that surrounds him. His photographic interests are in capturing the different manifestations of human behavior, their peculiarities and idiosyncracies. Compelled by the need to transform conflicts into images, he likes to go far in his thoughts and ideas, exploring the relationships between the human, the chaos and the decadence of modern life.
Since graduating in photography, his work has been featured on digital platforms (EyeEm / Berlin, 2016), photography competitions (World in Focus finalist, PDN Magazine - New York, 2016), and participation in book publications (Round not Square / Berlin, 2016) and magazines (Opus Magazine / Brazil, 2017).

SPAM was also selected and presented in video format at the Fundació Foto Colectania de Barcelona (November, 2018).
