When did you start using Leica?
In the late 90’s, my boyfriend bought me an M4-P as a birthday present. Before I was able to unwrap the gift, the camera – sitting in the trunk of his car – was stolen along with his car. My next Leica, a Q2, was a birthday gift to myself – a few years ago.

What is your favorite camera? Leica Q3

What is your favorite subject matter to shoot?
People – I am a photojournalist and my photography is a vehicle for relaying intimate stories of human resilience.

What other Leica camera are you thinking of getting?
The M11-P, the content credentials feature is amazing.

How has Leica changed your life?
My mirrorless Leica camera has given me the freedom to photograph in intimate situations, be discreet, and make impactful images without ever being intrusive.

As a photojournalist, capturing a decisive moment is paramount to making great pictures. My Q3 has the precision, and durability, I need to make images that inform the way we experience the world through photographs.
