Eman Mohammed is an award winning photojournalist and TED fellow, currently based in Washington D.C.

She was born in Saudi Arabia and educated in Gaza City, Palestine. Eman started her photojournalism career at the age of 19 in 2006.

For the past ten years Eman's work has been focused primarily on documenting the Israeli / Palestinian conflict and the military invasions that frequently occur in the area, including the formation of armed militant groups in the strip.

As her work has developed, Eman has evolved from a 'hard news style' covering the Israeli's bombing blitz of Gaza from 2008 - 2009  of this territory, to more long-term photographic projects documenting sensitive women's issues arising from the aftermath of conflict.

As her work has developed Eman's projects have expanded to include other countries within the Middle East, specifically resulting from her two most recent projects: "Diaspora / Ouyon Lajeaa" and "Broken Souvenirs".

Eman's photographs have been published internationally in important publications such as; the Guardian, Le Monde, VICE, Washington Post, Geo International, Mother Jones and Haartez. She was awarded the Chris Hondros Fellowship in 2014 and has been nominated for the Joop Swart Masterclass from 2009 - 2011.  Exhibited internationally, her work is included in the collection of the British Museum in London.  She became a TED Fellow in 2014.
