Khadija M. Farah
I am a freelance photographer based in Nairobi.
To me, photography that provides a ‘light bulb moment’ or challenges public discourse on a subject is extremely important. So often, when people tell African stories, they either belong in the "Africa rising" or "Africa falling" narratives. Although both are valid, it's often very limiting. I'm so glad to see the rise of the "everyday Africa" narrative especially when told by Africans. These are the kinds of stories I seek to tell.
Other than photography, I'm a lifelong Liverpool F.C. supporter, jumpsuit enthusiast, and lover of spiced tea. Available for assignments worldwide.
