Adriane de Souza is a Brazilian photographer currently based in Doha, Qatar. She received her BA degree in Social Sciences from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ). 

Years later, she shifted to photography as a way of self-liberation, research, and to further understand human interactions and emotions.

Adriane has been selected by Adobe as a part of Adobe Rising Stars in 2019, featured in PH Museum Mobile Photography Book, cover of O'cyano Magazine Ed9.2, won second place and was book cover for Photos from the Arab World by Jotun and won third place in Lens Culture Journeys 2020 Single Image Awards.

Her work has been exhibited in several locations such as Brazil, Qatar, Russia, UAE and United Kingdom.

Adriane has two ongoing projects. "I am not my father", where she explores concepts of masculinity and "Qawiya" (قوية) which means strong, where she explores the presence and importance of women in various sports in Qatar.
