Arthur de Carvalho was born in 1890 son of a civil servant of Macanese background. He was a dentist who lived in Hong Kong, Shanghai and South America in the 1930s. 'The North China Herald' reported on November 23, 1932: "News has been received in Shanghai from Paris announcing that the four pictures which Arthur de Carvalho entered in the '27e Salon International d'Art Photographique 1932 have all been accepted." He exhibited and sold his pictorialist photographs at his gallery at 12 The Bund, Shanghai.

His work was published in the British annual 'Photograms of the Year' in 1933 and in the 1935 issue of 'Photographie', one of the finest art journals of its time. By 1940 he was settled in San Francisco where he was listed as a photographer and producer of advertising films. He died in California in 1969.
