She was amazed at what happened to her career after she appeared in LensCulture.

RobinsonHebe writes: "Thanks for promoting my work! The interest for my project is a bit overwhelming, but it is really rewarding being able to reach so many people. LensCulture really did make my breakthrough, and very exciting things are still happening…" 

Her recent success stories include: 
- Featured by CNN Photos and other online photo sites
- Published in the Italian art magazine, RearViewMirror
- Exhibition at the Athens Photo Festival
- Exhibition at Fotografiets Hus, Oslo
- Publication in D2, a Norwegian lifestyle/photography magazine
- Publication in the Norwegian photo magazine Fotografi 
And an even more exciting (but still secret) project in the works!

Congratulations, Hebe, and we wish you continued success!
