This week, Eman Mohammed, an award-winning photojournalist and Saudi-born, Palestinian-American, joins the podcast. Eman currently serves as a Senior Ted fellow based in Washington, DC however, her photographic journey began when she was just 19 years old, focusing on capturing the realities of war in Gaza. Over time, Eman found her niche for photo essays that shed light on human rights issues and challenge prevailing stereotypes. While her photography style has taken many different paths, her recent projects are centered on women within culturally sensitive communities and investigative narratives on race relations in the United States, seen through the lens of an outsider.
Her photographs have been featured in many renowned publications such as The Guardian, CNN, Le Monde, VICE, The Washington Post, Geo International, Mother Jones, NPR, Marie Claire, and The Atlantic. Moreover, her work has been recognized by various international organizations, and it has been acquired by the British Museum in London and The Harn Museum of Art at the University of Florida.
