This weeks inspiration comes from Photographer of the week Poliana DeVane.
Born and raised in beautiful Brasil, Poliana was exposed to a full spectrum of life, from the hustle and bustle of big city Sao Paulo to the slow and sleepy beach towns nestled in the Atlantic Forest. It is no wonder she developed a passion for capturing the beauty of the natural world.
Poliana worked as an award winning photojournalist for several newspapers in Sao Paulo state, Brasil, and also hosted a weekly radio show.
In 2004 she packed her bags and headed to the states looking to take advantage of the opportunities that the US offers. Currently living in New Jersey her photography is continually inspired by the people and places that are now part of her life.
