For eight years I worked throughout the Middle East and Africa for various European and US News Magazines. My work has been published in various media including Der Spiegel, Die Welt, The New York Times, TIME, Paris Match and Le Monde etc.
I have experience also of lecturing and teaching the subject of documentary photography. Recently I have put together my syllabus on how to use photography as an effective tool for social activism, and taught the same to adult students in the UK.
