Photographer and poet, pianist and friend of writers and musicians from around the world, Alécio de Andrade (Brazil, 1938 – France, 2003) became interested in music and poetry from a young age (he was awarded several times for his lyrical work). In 1964 he moved to Paris, where he lived until his death. He made ​​photographs commissioned by media such as Newsweek and Elle, and was a member of Magnum Photos Agency. His production is strongly marked by the stamp of Henri Cartier-Bresson: the use of black and white and no retouching or flash.
