* NOTE:

In terms of the used method, the great part of our photographs and films are classic documentary projects: We do not stage,  we don't pay, we don't push. Nevertheless, we don't consider ourselves as journalistic photographers or journalistic filmmakers but as chroniclers, poets, artists and visual storytellers who deal in creative ways with a subjective "first reality".
