I am a London-based photographer, editor and journalist focusing on the politics of race, gender, identity, migration and displacement of people due to climate change and armed conflicts.

I am a HEFAT (Hostile Environment First Aid Awareness Trained) certified Photographer. My most recent experience in conflict reporting is Syria’s civil war and the aftermath of the Armenian – Azerbaijani armed conflict in the disputed region of Nagorno Karabakh. I am now in Ukraine, reporting on the fight against Russia’s military aggression. 

Most of my work has been featured in American, European and Middle Eastern print, web and broadcast media.
