Maybe a little late, here’s my selection of my best pictures from 2012.
For sure, it has been a very intense and productive year in which a lot of important things has happened: after some months in spain and around Europe, I finally moved to Cambodia, I visited a lot of amazing places all around Asia (especially Myanmar), several of my
pictures were published in international magazines and newspaper and I got my first assignment for the International Herald Tribune.
I got a lot of expectation, ideas and plans for this next year and a good feeling that it will be even better than 2012.
Have an happy new year,

All the dresses are made by 3 Senegalese women who live in the small village of Kafountine, South of Senegal. With the money earned from selling them in Spain, they recover the production costs as well as buy new materials to keep production going and give them a hope for a better future.
