My name is Constanza Portnoy, I am of Argentine nationality. I have a bachelor's degree in psychology and a postgraduate specialization in disability and early childhood. I am also a documentary photographer.
I am currently developing a research work on a doctoral thesis that merges both disciplines and deals with the psychosocial impact and resilience of human beings to certain events with traumatic potential generated by causes such as institutional, governmental or social abandonment. In this sense, I am interested in deepening the construction of family bonds and love relationships that have a positive impact on the lives of those affected, especially, I emphasize in those minority sectors that fight for their denied rights. I have published my work as a photographer in various Argentine media outlets mainstream and independent.
I have also published for international platforms works as a correspondent on the struggles for the rights of women.
