About Me

Photography for me is a tool to dig deep and promote change. It is my way to explore humans, listen to them and tell their stories. Listening with my eyes is the essence of my work and it means engaging with my subjects and unveil something truthful about them.

After years of work as a trauma psychologist and a master in photojournalism, I use photography to empower survivors of trauma. I work with women who survived domestic abuse and told the stories of FGM survivors and left-behind children in Romania, I ran workshops for teenager girls about expressing emotions through portraiture in Tanzania and worked for two years on Female Genital Mutilation in London. I am working on a personal project about children and technology at the moment.

Some of my clients include Thomson Reuters Foundation, Westminster University, The Evening Standard, Magic Me charity, BBC Children in Need, Forward UK and many others.
