Today, we are publishing our eighteenth interview in our new series, Hope in Adversity. One that’s based around art, artists and isolation during the midst of Covid-19. This interview is with award winning mobile artist with M. Cecilia São Thiago from São Paulo, Brazil. São Thiago’s photographs are exquisite and allegorical in nature. Their vitality is instrumental in pulling the viewer into a very intimate world chronicling the self and beyond. Mysticism and spirituality have long informed São Thiago’s practice and she is refreshingly transparent about her work. She once told me, “my photos carry in each of them everything that I have learned, what I have lived, and what I have suffered”. This is a deeply honest interview, one that delivers all that we need to know. Sao Thiago explains “Sharing art is opening my little black book, where everything that hurts me is written, for everyone“. Enjoy!
