Simba Russeau is a photojournalist, writer and radio correspondent currently based in Beirut, Lebanon.

Influenced by the reality of surviving 7 years, as a youth, on the streets, she taught herself photography. In 2002, Simba covered her first foreign assignment in East Timor. Since then she has reported from South Korea, Philippines, Haiti, Japan, the US and Lebanon. For 4 years she worked as an assignment editor for Pacifica Radio�s Free Speech Radio News. A daily national and international radio news program. Simba�s work has been published in Rolling Stone and Sowar Magazine. As a camera operator she has worked for Emmy award winning actor Tim Robbins, PBS� �In the Life,� Sundance and independent filmmaker Jon Alpert. Currently she is working on photo essays documenting homeless and displaced people around the world and domestic workers in Lebanon.

As a student of the martial arts Simba believes it's important to appreciate your life and train hard everyday to develop better character and purpose, which is why she has dedicated her life to documenting social issues.

Description:
Thirty years ago, Dubai, the second largest city in the United Arab Emirates, was a small fishing port. Now, its one of the fastest growing cities in the world. Largely driven by a construction industry reliant on low-paid South Asia workers. Most workers in Dubai earn between 150-250 per month, half of which is sent home to their families. The decline of the dollar has impacted the workers earnings, since the dirham is pegged to the U.S. currency.
