Ribeiro’s images are a graphic report on areas affected by major civil works in Brazil.

Her work usually addresses issues related to human rights, nature, identity and documentary reports.

She is a member of the Biotropic Institute, a Brazilian non-governmental organisation that is concerned with the conservation of biodiversity, and the Fast Forward - Women in Photography group, an association of female photographers that seeks to promote the work of women in photography worldwide.

She also collaborates with the Voices of Latin America initiative, directed by the Latin America Bureau-LAB, which supports the fight of social movements against development mega-projects, violence and the gentrification of urban areas.
