Now a full-time freelance photojournalist, Isabelle’s passion has always been in photographing the social and the human.
Her fascination for photographic documentation of events brought her to Chile where she created 5 slideshows, first on the violation of human rights during the dictatorship and then on the first years after the elections.
When she decided to work as a full time photojournalist and leave her previous job, she created and presented an exhibition on the damaging effects of immigration detention. This arose through her experience as the funder and director of a NGO working with detained asylum seekers in immigration removal centres in the UK.
Since being a full time free lance photojournalist, parallel to shorter assignments, she has worked in the area around Chernobyl photographing the aftermath of the nuclear disaster especially the consequences on the children who were born after the nuclear catastrophe.
She is also working on a number of projects on conflict resolution and the difficulties of achieving peace between opposite interests in communities in different parts of the world.
