Based in Pernambuco, Brazil, João Velozo is a freelance photographer specializing in covering urban violence, human rights, and environmental issues, most specifically those taking place in the Brazilian Northeast. 

Once a Biology major, he quit the academic area in order to focus on photography, through which he felt he could promote bigger changes and social justice. His work as a photographer reflects his continuous dedication to humanitarian and environmental causes.
