Photography means more to me than just doing it: it is as important as breathing and living. I switched in documentary shooting seven years ago. Image has always been an important form of narrative but I wanted it to show the touch of life and humanity that define my ideas. Socially important and difficult topics that are approachable make me work. I feel I have a mission.

I've been professionally acclaimed for my work. For example my photo was chosen in The European photography 100 book in 2016. I am proud and humbled as well as grateful. Things  that have touched me, touched them, too. That is the stories, the interaction with people that developed to the eye to see.

The adjacent cemetery was filled with its victims; everyone was afraid of becoming infected, or of being killed in some other way . . ."
