Ever since she started photographing she has been focusing on the people who surround her the most, she has been using these images as the starting point of her work. The image as a personal document is something that has triggered people from around the world and what keeps fascinating everyone. Intimacy between lovers and friends are often shared in private, away from the gaze of outsiders, while she loves to put this out on display. The tender and affectionate is shown in a raw and explosive way.
