For two years she followed African refugees heading to Europe through the Ténéré desert and war-ridden Libya.
Exile is the main theme of her work.

She regularly collaborates with Doctors Without Borders, the iIntenational Red Cross and the International Organization for Migration and various paper and online publications.
