About Victor Moriyama

Victor Moriyama is a Brazilian photographer, working as a photojournalist since 2010. Inspired by the huge social inequalities and its resulting violence between social classes, he recently moved from São Paulo, his homeland, to Belém, Pará state, in the north of Brazil.

He believes there is an enormous field to produce powerful visual stories in a country such as Brazil. Social issues, humanitarian conflicts and environmental problems are some of the topics addressed by him.

He has worked as a stringer photographer for one of the biggest newspapers in Brazil, Folha de São Paulo. Since 2013 he’s been working as a stringer photographer for Getty Images News and currently works as a regular contributor to National Geographic Magazine, El PaísLe Monde and NGOs like Human Rights Watch and Greenpeace. You can also find his work in international agencies and newspapers such as Reuters, AFP, The New York Times, Al Jazeera, The Guardian, Time Magazine and others.

Since 2017 he's part of the Fuji Film X Photographer Team.
