About

Photographer, Editor, and Photojournalist.

Have been working in these fields for more than 12 years in different countries around the world.

After receiving a Masters Degree in Journalism/PR/Brand Management/Advertising/Investigation Skills/Social Media/News Production from International Independent Ecological-Political University, graduated from Rodchenko Moscow School of Photography and Media Arts.

Subsequently, graduated from ESEC Professional School in the field of film and audiovisual techniques. Recently, completed degrees with courses in Advertising and Art-direction from the School of Visual Arts in New York.

 

Sometimes art can change how people see the world, but I want to change how the world sees people.

 

Through my imagery, I am passionate about giving a voice to the voiceless – shining a light on those whom society has often placed in darkness.

I was brought to photography by cinema when I was 20 years old, and I was fascinated by the new wave in French movies, in particular by films of Jean Luc Godard.

His films immersed me in a special, unlikely reality while watching them I understood that I wanted to stop the moments to capture reality and tell the stories with my photographs.

I have traveled around the world, working in different countries, creating social documentaries and art projects allowing me to look at things from the other side.
