I am a photojournalist from Vila Real de Trás-os-Montes, Portugal, born in the glorious '80s. Since September 2022 I am a Reuters staff photojournalist based in Madrid. In 2017 I was named by TIME one of '34 Female Photographers to Follow'.  I'm also a past  National Geographic Society grantee, a recipient of the Kim Wall/IWMF Memorial Fund and member of Women Photograph.

Most recently and as a photojournalist for Reuters, I covered the Russian invasion of Ukraine and the aftermath of the infiltration by Hamas gunmen from the Gaza Strip into Israel.
Starting out as a wire correspondent in Jerusalem, I began to document my written reporting through photography. Since then, my freelance in-depth visual reporting has taken me from covering Portugal and Spain, 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 different aspects of the Kashmir conflict on the 70th anniversary of the longest ongoing case of military rule over a civilian population. Other in-depth visual reporting included the connection between conservative politics and the impact of air pollution in Poland as well as the origins and toll of a protracted human trafficking crisis in Nepal or the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in the remote and isolated rural areas of northern Portugal.
