I was born in Slovenia in 1987. As a kid I dreamed of becoming a photographer for National Geographic. Then I forgot all about it.
I studied Management at the Faculty of Economics in Ljubljana before moving to London to study photography. I obtained my MA in Photojournalism and Documentary Photography at the London College of Communication in 2011. Since then, I’ve been working as an independent freelance photographer.
In 2013, I received the Leica Oskar Barnack Award for a photo story called Waiting to Move. In the same year, I also received an award at the Les Rencontres d’Arles, for my photo story On Thin Ice, which also won MAGNUM 30 under 30 in 2015.
I’ve been working as a contributing photographer for National Geographic Magazine since 2014. So much for childhood dreams ever being naive.
