The parents of photographer Adriano Bonfim, Edna (in memoriam) and Antonio Bonfim, did a wonderful thing in his first year of life. They made a photo a day, a photographic chronicle. Today, with so much technology, this is normal. In 1978 it was an act of love and selflessness. And it was the sound of the shutter clicks Adriano grew up with.
Already in adulthood, he was a student of the great master Fernando Seixas, Carioca, who made many works for major magazines,
including Playboy. Adriano made photos of sport, landscapes, cars in auto shows, until he reach the great passion: sexy.
The great mystery to shoot someone, who may be dressed from head to toe and still convey sensuality with a look, fascinated him.
The ability to immortalize beauty, that is transitory and causes sensations in the viewer, led him into this world.
Adriano prefers shooting in contrasting locations. Warehouses, abandoned buildings, plants, changing rooms, workshops. Inhospitable places, where you normally would
not see any woman, are the locations, at which Adriano is taking his photos.
