One of the things that make me love my job the most is the chance I get to be in peculiar places and situations. While I was shooting my reportage Ionian Spirit, I got into the ship engine room. It’s been a fascinating experience: every surface was full of tubes and inactive machinery. It felt like entering the belly of a sleeping mechanical beast. And while I was wide-eyedly going through that metal maze, Mohamed guided me in and out, a reassuring smile on his face for every time I lost my balance on the greasy floor.
I deeply believe that my duty is getting into these situations in order to bring them home to my audience.
