Eustáquio Neves was born in Juatuba, Minas Gerais in 1955, and today lives and works in Diamantina, Minas Gerais. He earned a degree in chemistry in 1980, but left the field five years later to devote himself fully to photography. Since then, the self-taught photographer has produced photo essays such as Arturos (1994), Futebol (1998) and Objetivação do corpo (1999). Starting in 2005, he also began producing experimental videos, such as Dead Horse (2009), and that same year released his first book, Eustáquio Neves, part of the Photoportátil series published by Cosac Naify. He won the 4th Porto Seguro Photography Prize (São Paulo, Brazil, 2004) and the JP Morgan Photography Prize (São Paulo, Brazil, 1997). His exhibitions include the solo shows “Letters to Sea” (FotoFest International, Texas, USA, 2017), “Valongo: Cartas ao mar” (Museu Afro Brasil, São Paulo, Brazil, 2015), “Memories” (Centre Régional de la Photographie Nord-Pas de Calais, France, 2002) and “Lo individuo y su Memoria” (VI Havana Biennial, Cuba, 1997), as well as the group shows “Agora somos todxs negrxs?” (Galpão Videobrasil, São Paulo Brazil, 2017), “Afro-Brazil – Photographic Portraits in Brazil 1869/2013” (ifa Gallery Stuttgart, Germany, 2013), the 2nd Biennial of the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography (Japan, 1997) and “Novas Travessias, New Directions in Brazilian Photography” (The Photographers’ Gallery, London, England, 1996).
