From years spent amid the vibrancy and drama of Brazil her approach to photograph people and to become part of their own lives come very naturally, making lifestyle and humanity her strongest topics for storytelling.

"Her eye for seeing the extraordinary in the ordinary is both acute and severe. Her attention for minutia often turns the subject upside in revealing an otherwise hidden agenda. She has an urgency in her work that demands attention. It is stark, immediate but above all, honest." - Richard Pinder
