Eliseu Cavalcante is a Brazilian photographer based in New York. His work focuses on different cultures, environmental issues, and social change. He believes in the power of photography to change lives. What most fascinates him as a photographer is to have the power to show people something they have never seen before for the first time. He often find these things in life’s simple moments. The way he captures moments represents the way he was raised, learning to respect nature and its magnitude. Being raised in this environment gave him the power to see life in a different way, and it empowered his photography with the beauty of simplicity. The art of capturing moments has the power to transport people to a different place and time. It’s about bringing the unknown to those who could not be part of that specific time in space.
