“As a photojournalist I witnessed the consequences of war, natural disasters, terrorist attacks, train wrecks and economic crashes. I’ve seen the worst and best of humankind, it continually inspires me to create work which is genuine, and believable. Listening to real stories from real people – that’s how you get authenticity”
