I am documentary photographer and videographer, focussing on questions tied to the image and its use as a tool for social dialogue.
I graduated with a Masters in the Anthropology and Sociology of Development from the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies (IHEID) in 2014 where I focussed on the use of photography as a tool for reconciliation following the 2007/8 post-election violence in Kenya.
Currently, my research – published in part at Gauge -, is articulated around the movements of refugees and migrants in the Balkan corridor and Greece, as well as the social and political dynamics surrounding the question of asylum in Switzerland and France.
I pay particular attention to the figure of the independent volunteer, primarily European citizens, and their negotiations with notions of identity, of the political, and of the social, including their reactions to their own interventions and experiences. I am currently producing a documentary film fog two Swiss volunteers who join the shore patrol teams coming to the assitance of refugees arriving from Turkey, on the Island of Chios (in post-production).
