In 1948 Lorca joined the Foto-Cine Clube Bandeirante (FCCB), a celebrated center for the diffusion of modern photography in the city of São Paulo. Lorca left the Foto-Cine Clube Bandeirante around 1952 to become a professional photographer, in more than fifty years of activity he never ceased to carry out his authorial work during his free time between commercial orders or, many times, during them. His studio, one of the pioneers in advertising and commercial photography in São Paulo, was one of the most active from 1960 to 1980 and had a laboratory inside, where all his negatives and photos were revealed and printed.

His work integrates important institutional collections such as MoMA (NY), MAM, Masp e Pinacoteca.
