I'm a freelance documentary photographer experienced in reportage, editorial, event and motion picture still photography. My photographs have been showcased in the UN Headquarters Visitor Centre in New York, at the the Aleppo 12th International Photo Festival, and in various collective and solo exhibitions in Australia, Cuba, Spain and the USA. My work has been featured in publications such as Foto8, Inspired Eye Photography Magazine, Social Documentary Network, and has also appeared in publications such as BBC World News, The Guardian, El País, The Atlantic, Clutch Magazine, and Harvard's Hutchins Center's Transition Magazine.
They Are We is a remarkable story of family ties that endure through time, distance and adversity. Separated for more than 170 years, the Gangá-Longobá, a group of African descendants from Perico, Cuba, have managed to reunite with the African family in Sierra Leone from whom their ancestor had been stolen.
It’s a mundane ritual, the daily tragicomedy of commuting through the surreal Cuban capital. The bus is the main stage: people from every social stratum, wedged together in a steamy vehicle. Aircon disabled as part of the state effort to save fuel (money). Doors closed, windows jammed, spirits down, temperature already high, and rising. There is nowhere to move, nowhere to escape; personal space is in short supply and hands, elbows, bags, and boxes assault it relentlessly. Some commuters are lost in thought, others try to tune out as a way of coping, while a few just fall asleep as a means to escape. Little vignettes unfold every second, some too discrete to be noticed, too ephemeral to be remembered.
