Rogerio Reis is a distinguished photojournalist who frequently photographs the activities of Brazil's President at home and abroad. Reis is the 1999 winner of Brazil's National Prize for Documentary Photography, and one of the founders of Brazil's first professional photo bank. His work has been exhibited in Brazil, the U.S., London, France, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland, where his powerful 'Carnival on Canvas,' and 'Man/Machine: Train Surfers' series were critical successes.

Rogerio Reis's photographs are in the permanent collections of the Danforth Museum of Art, Musee Francais de Photographie, the Fogg Art Museum, Harvard University, Museu de Arte de Rio de Janeiro, Museu de Arte de Sao Paulo, and the Worcester Art Museum among others. His work appears in the key reference book, 'A Song to Reality, Latin American Photography 1860-1993' by Erika Billeter, published in a Spanish and an English language edition. His work has frequently appeared in magazines including 'Newsweek,' 'Geo,' 'Paparacci' and others. Editorial Aeroplano, Rio de Janeiro, published a monograph entitled 'Na Lona' in September of 2001.
