I am a photojournalist and journalist from Vila Real de Trás-os-Montes, Portugal, born in the glorious '80s.

While working as a wire reporter in Jerusalem I began to shoot and visually document my written stories. Since then, my reporting has taken me from covering my home country Portugal, amidst the European economic crisis, to the Middle East, reporting on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and, among other regions, to Kashmir during the 70th anniversary of the arrival of Indian troops to the territory, now under the longest case of military rule over a civilian population. 
Back in Portugal, I'm now seeking to examine my own society while, continuing my international work.

I'm mostly interested in how collective narratives intersect and/or clash along national and communal lines within countries and societies as well as its consequences on ordinary people's lives. 

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

My photographic and written reporting has been published in Al Jazeera English, Newsweek [Japan], Foreign Affairs [US], Courrier International [Portugal], New Internationalist [UK], The Sydney Morning Herald [Australia], Woz Die Wochenzeitung [Switzerland], Profil [Austria], Il Reportage [Italy], Informatìon [Denmark], El País [Spain], The International Business Times, Aftenposten Innsikt [Norway], Haaretz [Israel], RFI Radio France Internationale, LUSA Portuguese News Agency, Público [Portugal], La Vanguardia [Spain], Diario ABC [Spain], among many others.
