I am a freelance photojournalist and journalist born in Vila Real de Trás-os-Montes, Portugal, in the glorious '80s.  In 2017 I was named by TIME one of '34 Female Photographers to Follow'. I'm a 2019 IWMF Grantee of the Kim Wall Memorial Fund and member of Women Photograph.

While working as a wire reporter in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv I began to visually document my written stories. Since then, my reporting has taken me from the Middle East, reporting on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and less visible aspects there, such as the African asylum seeking community in Israel, to covering social strife in my home country Portugal, amidst the European economic crisis.
I have also documented the lives of Kashmiris in the longest case of a civilian population under military rule and produced a visual account on the connection between conservative politics in Poland and air pollution. My latest work examines the origins and the toll of a human trafficking crisis underway in Nepal. 

Back to Portugal and Europe, I'm seeking to examine my own society while continuing my overseas work.
