This is me,
I have travelled to many countries and witnessed extreme poverty, destruction, serious illness and violence. Luckily, I also experienced beauty, love and the power of humans, especially in circumstances far less secure than my own.
My photographs have been exhibited in (international) galleries and published in (international) magazines. I love my work for Duniya Foundation, an organization with a mission to improve very specific problems children and women in India & Vietnam face and by developing programs that can help them gain control over their own lives again.
Working on these Street Food books, collecting recipes, cooking, tasting, styling, photographing and writing about traditional local (mostly vegetarian) food, and donating a large share of the proceeds to local humanitarian causes, is my way of sharing with those less privileged. Whether from Vietnam, India or Kosovo, the fresh, mostly simple ingredients will produce wholesome food for you and your loved ones.
