I am a freelance photojournalist and journalist born in Vila Real de Trás-os-Montes, Portugal, in the glorious 80's. My reporting has taken me from covering Portugal and Spain, amidst the European economic crisis, to Kashmir, in the latest escalation 70 years after the Indian Partition, and to the Middle East, covering the Israeli-Palestinian conflict as photojournalist and correspondent for several media outlets. 

I was named by TIME Magazine one of  '34 Female Photographers to Follow'. 

Both my photography and writing can be seen in Al Jazeera English, AJ+, Foreign Affairs, Courrier International, Profil [Austria], Il Reportage [Italy], El País [Spain], The Week [US], The International Business Times, Sydney Morning Herald [Australia], Aftenposten Innsikt [Norway], Woz Die Wochenzeitung [Switzerland], Haaretz [Israel], RFI — Radio France Internationale, LUSA Portuguese News Agency, Huck Magazine [UK], La Vanguardia [Spain], Diario ABC [Spain], among others.

I have lived and/or worked in Israel/Palestine, Portugal, Spain, Morocco, Poland, Kashmir and I hold a Journalism Masters from the University of Barcelona.
