Claudia completed an MA in Photojournalism and Documentary Photography at the LCC in 2007. Her final project The Changes Within: Bhutan Between Monarchy and Democracy documented Bhutan's first ever democratic elections. It was published in the NZZ (Neue Zuercher Zeitung). She is drawn to subjects of migration, employment and environment, situations of imminent change. The Last of the Billingsgate Fish Porters followed the porters’ final year before the City of London Corporation enforced their removal – an example of the loss of traditional working-class labour and its effects. This was published online in the Guardian and exhibited in a solo show at the Maz Galerie (Switzerland). My current project, Of Flying Rivers & Flooded Lands, examines rural communities threatened by the Brazilian government’s plans to build a massive hydro-electricity dam amid pristine Amazonian rainforest.
