The cover:What drew me to this image was the stark whiteness of the new car juxtaposed against the old, beautifully stained walls of an abandoned building. The word 'independència' clearly referring to the desire of Catalan independence somehow metaphorically spoke to the endurance of this dream; from the past when the building had life and occupancy to the present when brand new Minis pass through the streets.

I've been taking pictures for eight years and have visited over 30 countries photographing and creating documentary stories. I'm currently travelling through Israel and Palestine examining the conflict there through the eyes of women.

My favourite place in Barcelonais Born. I love getting lost in the narrow streets, surrounded by art galleries, boutiques and cafés.

An essential itemis my iPhone. I use it to make voice memos and notes, take audio clips of my subjects, to photograph, to check the weather. You name it, it does it!
