Mauro Pinto

Born in 1974 in Maputo, Mozambique
Lives and works in Maputo, Mozambique



In the early 1990s, Mauro Pinto studied photography at Monitor International School in Johannesburg and during this period he made an internship with the photographer José Machato. Then, he moved to Maputo where he worked next to the pioneer of photojournalism in Mozambique, Ricardo Rangel and where he will be placed next to the Norwegian photographer Trygve Bolstad or Karl Kugel from Reunion Island.

In 2002, he participated in the exhibition « TO MATOLA » in « Espace 1789 Saint-Ouen » in Paris and in 2010, he participated in the second edition of El Ojo Salvaje, at Paraguay, and has become the first african artist to expose there.

Mauro Pinto interrogates the visual creation, information and communication. His works capture the essence of space thanks to a clever play with contrasts that can be seen provocative. Today, his work makes him one of the most recognized contemporary photographers of Mozambique.
