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 and Tel Aviv 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. 

I'm interested in how collective narratives intersect and/or clash along national and communal lines, as well as in its consequences on the lives of ordinary people navigating those lines. Back in Portugal and Europe, I'm also seeking to examine my own society while continuing my overseas work.

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

My photographic and written reporting has been published in Al Jazeera English, The Guardian [UK], Newsweek [Japan], Foreign Affairs [US], Courrier International [Portugal], El País [Spain], New Internationalist [UK], NRC Handelsblad [Netherlands], The Sydney Morning Herald [Australia], Woz Die Wochenzeitung [Switzerland], Profil [Austria], Il Reportage [Italy], Informatìon [Denmark], 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.
