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 including The Washington Post, Die Zeit, The Guardian, Libération, Der Spiegel, AFP, The Times of Malta, TROUW and Political Critique.

I have also worked with a number of organisations including Open Society Foundations, Transgender Europe and UNHCR, amongst others.

I am a member of the platform Women Photograph.
