I’ve always been fascinated by faces and the stories they tell. If the eyes truly are a window into the soul, then the gaze of some of the people I’ve met reflect a deepness of emotion, and sometimes suffering, that cannot be put into words.

In September 2018, I was commissioned by Handicap International to capture portraits of men, women and children in Iraq who are survivors of explosive weapons. The images were exhibited across France as part of the annual Pyramid of Shoes event to raise awareness of the impact of explosive weapons on civilians.
