About


I am a Maltese photographer and writer who is interested in exploring social issues within my home country. Besides that, I am drawn to investigating the effects of new technologies on individuals and society at large.

After having graduated in BA Communications (Hons) from the University of Malta in 2012, I went on to pursue an MA in Photojournalism and Documentary Photography at London College of Communication in 2014.

My photographs have been published in a variety of publications and for a number of organisations including Die Zeit, The Guardian, Libération, Der Spiegel, AFP, The Times of Malta, TROUW, The Malta Independent, Political Critique, Women Photograph, Open Society Foundations, Transgender Europe and UNHCR, amongst others.

I am a member of the platform Women Photograph.
