Paulo Mancini was born in São Paulo in 1961. He began shooting for magazines and fashion catalogues in 1985, and lived in Milan from 1989 to 1993 from where he developed the same line of work.
Upon returning to Brazil, he devoted special attention to advertising photography. Paulo has participated in several collective exhibitions and one solo show, entitled 'Miracle', that was exhibited at Pinacoteca do Estado. He has won a selection of advertising awards and published two books: 'Avon: Make-up Across the Ages' in 1996, and 'Cosmos: Three Views on Russia' in 2007, that was also exhibited at Pinacoteca.
He has recently worked with some of the leading advertising agencies and is currently developing personal essays in preparation for a book about China, due to be launched later this year.
