The Retratistas do Morro collective aims to contribute to the construction of a narrative of the recent history of Brazilian images based on the understanding and recognition of the existence of the movement of photographers who lived and worked in the favelas, recording daily the ways of life of their communities over the years last 50 years.

It operates through a set of actions linked to the fields of image research, historicity, community experiences, preservation of oral and visual memory, conservation of photo archives and digital restoration, proposing reflections on the fundamental changes promoted by these photographs in current models of perception.
