What is your approach to composing your photographs?
"I usually invest to learn about the people and the environment then I spend time in this environment to become invisible – part of the landscape – and to gain people's trust. After achieving that I look for the moments we pass by every day, that tell stories of the people. That's the quality that I aim to achieve in my photography, which needs passion, patience and commitment."
Who are your biggest photographic influences, and why?
"Sir Don McCullin's photography has always been an inspiration for me. He told many untold stories, portraying people with pride and always followed the human side of any conflict. An example of a great human and photographer."
What is your role within Everyday Refugees Foundation?
"I founded Everyday Refugees Foundation to tell stories, to share them with the world and to help to people who were forced to leave everything behind in search of a safe home. There is no better way than photography to do that."
How did your participation within Everyday Refugees Foundation begin?
"After years of travelling the world documenting stories of the people, I realised that through my craft I could spread awareness and change stereotypes."
Your role as a photographer lets you observe situations from many different perspectives. Would you say you feel optimistic or pessimistic?
"I always feel optimistic, and you can see that in my images through the theme of my photography: 'a smile in the middle of the rubble'. In my images there is always a sign of hope, and this hope is the way I see the world. There is no better way to show this hope than through my camera."
