As her way of life, she loves to conceptually and symbolically tell stories. Usually by showing a different perspective on personal daily life struggles.

DO YOU HEAR ME
Approximately 500 babies, toddlers and children under age 3 currently live incarcerated with their mothers in prisons across Mexico. They have been described as “the invisible children.”Until 2016, Mexico had no laws recognising the rights of these children or mandating specific treatment for them while living in prison.
PLANET OF THE AFAR
The Ethiopian Afar tribe are living in an area that looks in nothing like the rest of Ethiopia. For centuries long they have managed to live and work in one of the hottest place on earth including mineral landscapes, volcano’s and endless salt and lava lakes. The colourful landscapes are full of iron, sulphur and plenty of other natural minerals.
The ceremonies are dedicated to wish for a prosperous, harvest, healthy animals and blessings for the community and passed away ancestors. Every occasion has its own ceremony. Many of the ancient artistic traditions for which Africa is so well known have been preserved in Burkina Faso because so many people continue to honour the ancestral spirits.
