Claudia Jaguaribe was born in Rio de Janeiro and since the 90s, lives and works in São Paulo. Her production is characterized by an intense visual research that uses photography, video and the Internet to deal with aspects of contemporary society. Her work is very representative of the multifaceted practices and diversity of current photographic practice. She explores both studio practices as well as an extensive research on the materiality of the image and the uneasiness  that photography brings to the viewer and artist.  In creating images she has a wide range of interests such as in displaced objects from their original meaning, such as in the Blue Series, Amores Perros and Ma Femme to documentary projects in which she reworks the very format of the documentation such as in the Body of the City and What are you afraid of? In recent years, Claudia approaches landscape photography as a reinvention of nature such as in the series When I saw, perhaps one of her best known works. In 2010 she was awarded the Marc Ferrez Photography Prize by Funarte (National Foundation for the Arts) for a new series. This project is in line with her continuing research on nature now regarding the issue of water. Also in 2010, she  was nominated for the Prix Pictet for photography and the work presented  Rio de Janeiro / Entre Morros was selected for the book by teNeues Growth'sed. Photographs are in several private collections and collections of institutions such as Maison Européenne de la Photographie - Paris, Brasilea Foundation in Basel, Switzerland, France, the Museum of Modern Art, Sao Paulo-SP, Brazil, MASP - Sao Paulo, Itau Cultural, Sao Paulo, Institute for Contemporary Art Inhotim, Minas Gerais. Jaguaribe published twelve books, including Entrevistas by Ed Madalena in 2014, Sobre São Paulo by Ed Madalena in 2013, Entre Morros by Cosac Naify in 2012 Cidades, Ed by Cia das Letras in 1993, Aeroporto by Ed Codex in 2002, Quando eu Vi by Ed Punctum, Rome in 2009. Her book Aeroporto was included as one of the best books published in Latin American Photobook History by Horacio Fernandez in collaboration with Martin Parr, Iatã Canabrava, edited  by Aperture , CosacNaify, and I reversed . About São Paulo and Interviews were also awarded several important prizes including one of the the best photobooks at Kassel 2015. In 2013 she cofounded the publishing house Ed.
