Her photos are exhibited in a international livel for example in Los Angeles, New York, Berlin and on magazines like ID. American Prayer and The American Night by Jim Morrison, they were a fundamental starting point for her. A foggy and nostalgic vision that explore the meaning of the american dream in 2015.
