Diego Allies is a street photographer, from São Paulo with a unique and very expressive style. His compositions with contrasting lights and fluid forms express his walks and particular way of relating to the city, the streets and the human being. Always accompanied by his camera, usually compact and low-resource models, Aliados positions himself as an invisible photographer, an amateur who aims to go unnoticed in order to reach where few photographers have gone, revealing the lights from the dark, making anonymous beings recognized, walking to places where few photographers dared to go and dialoguing with those usually forgotten.

His look presents the daily life of the São Paulo metropolis in strong and critical photographs, aligning simplicity and power in its forms, as well as in its creative processes. Aliados is an artist who, as he says, “seeks art without glamor with a simple and less addicted aesthetic”.
