Nayara Leite (b. 1989) is a Brazilian artist and writer based in Bergen, Norway. She holds an MFA from the Bergen Art Academy and an MA in Photojournalism & Documentary Photography from the London College of Communication. Nayara works across analogue photography, performance, writing, installation and video. Through autobiographical narratives, Brazilian political news, letters to close friends and archival material, she produces a portrayal of the reality in which the LGBTQ+ community lives in Brazil and in Norway.

For the past 2 years, Nayara has been working on her ongoing project, Meus Caros Amigos. The project contains a letter correspondence with 10 close friends in Brazil, regarding the situation for the LGBTQ+ community since the election of the self-proclaimed homophobic president Jair Bolsonaro.
