After almost ten years working as a staff photographer it´s now time for me to meet the world as a freelance photographer. My years working as a staff photographer have been challenging, stressful but also in many ways intriguing. 
I am thrilled to be able to work more with my own projects, which often includes the issues of human rights and especially women rights. Women still face resistance due to traditions, religions and cultures. The ability to decide over your own body and sexuality are still a contentious issue. Women and children are the most vulnerable, wherever in the world you turn your glaze.  I want to put the woman in focus by facing the women in the power of photography.

See you out there!
