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

I have specialized in photojournalism and documentary photography as well as feature writing, investigation and wire reporting. ​
My photographic and written reporting for international media has taken me from covering Portugal, amidst the European economic crisis, to the Middle East, reporting on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and on less visible aspects there, such as the African asylum seeking community in Israel. I also documented life in Kashmir surrounding the 70th anniversary of the longest ongoing case of military rule over a civilian population. Other photojournalism projects include topics such as the connection between conservative politics in Poland and air pollution as well as the origins and 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.
