Felipe Beltrame, 29, is a Brazilian photojournalist, focused on telling stories about Human Rights. Collaborating with NGOs, the traditional press or on his social digital media, his photographs represent important moments in contemporary Brazil.
The rupture of the Vale SA dam in Brumadinho, the 12th Ordinary Assembly of the Coordination of Indigenous Organizations of the Brazilian Amazon, the 15th Acampamento Terra Livre (Free Land Camp) in Brasília and the situation of vulnerable Venezuelan immigrants in the state of Roraima are some of the recent events that the photographer documented and others were published in expressive media such as National Geographic Brasil and the EFE Agency.
Due to these and other works, also as a cinematographer, Beltrame was invited to be part of the OAB Environment Commission of the Baixada Santista Metropolitan Region, gave lectures at university, participated in several collective and individual exhibitions, such as SP-Arte 2018 and SP-Foto 2020 and published two books, one individual and one with ten other Brazilian photographers.
In the globalized world, the image has gained even more prominence in communication. Powerful photographs are essential to tell stories that humanize and empathize in order to contribute to the mobilization of civil society in favor of socioenvironmental causes.
