Elcio Carriço was given an old Yashica 6x6 as a present by his parents at the age of 9. His prolific use of film brought him to the attention of the elderly Japanese owner of the only photography studio in his home town of Rancharia, who taught the young Carriço how to develop his own films and make portraits.

In his teens he became a photojournalist for Folha de São Paulo, and later Veja and Ístoé, among the best respected Brazilian magazines. He has worked with some of the biggest ad agencies in Brazil, and won awards in national and international competitions. He lived and worked in Salvador, Bahia, in the north-east of Brasil, for 19 years and recently moved to London.
