Khadija Farah is a travel and documentary photographer from Nairobi, Kenya.

From conservation to women’s issues, she is passionate about stories which provide a ‘light bulb moment’ or challenge public discourse on a subject. Much of her travel work seeks to document the daily lives of people and the issues that affect them. She is also interested in documenting faith communities and different religious rituals in the hope that it will foster familiarity with one another through our many expressions of faith.

She was part of the first Women Photograph mentorship program in 2017 and is a member of Women Photograph and World Press Photo's African Photojournalism Databases (APJD).
