Aga’s professional journey begun with fight photography during the time she lived in Thailand. Muay Thai was one of her many passions, and when she was presented with the opportunity to cover Muay Thai fights, she didn’t think twice about it and had the best time of her life doing it. During her life in SE Asia, Aga traveled extensively, had many adventures, and met many fascinating people. Eventually, a few years later, her journey took her to Indonesia and South Africa. Aga’s passion for photography and travel is shared with her passion for science, as she spends most of her time trying to cure people and the planet.

Aga actively supports human rights movements, environmental protection, and various conservation efforts. Aga’s assignments involve both freelance work and collaborations with various NGOs. She believes that photography should be evocative and revolutionary, an artistic expression free of conventions. She aims to portray people she photographs in the most powerful and meaningful way she can achieve while making a difference in the communities she continues to work with.
