"Being a photojournalist brings me face to face with highly sensitive moral issues that do not allow me to compromise on keeping the highest standards of credibility.
Striving for excellence in all aspects of my work means that I never settle for anything less than the best product in the market.
This is why I chose Canson Infinity Paper to showcase my work in the best possible way."
