Brazilian artist Rochelle Costi studied social communications at the Catholic University of Porto Alegre. After graduating she focused on photography seeking a personal expression with works that would dialogue with other forms of artistic expression.

In 1982 she took photography courses at the Federal University of Minas Gerais. A decade later she settled in London to attend Saint Martin’s School of Art and Camera Work to hone her work. She is currently considered one of the most important figures in contemporary Brazilian photography.

Costi’s exhibitions have been presented in Brazil, London, Amsterdam, and Cuba. She has participated in the following biennials: 24th and 29th Bienal de São Paulo, Brazil, 1998 and 2010 respectively; X Bienal de Cuenca, Ecuador, 2009; XXVI Bienal de Pontevedra, Spain 2000; II Mercosur Biennial, Porto Alegre, Brazil, 1999; and VI and VII Havana Biennial, Cuba, 1997 and 2000 respectively.
