Photojournalism & War: Newsha Tavakolian

We have recently been researching photojournalists in MENA and their documentation on the current political scene. It is important to realize the magnitude artists, designers, and talents in general have on current events – both in trying to depict what is going on around them, and trying to influence the outcome in some way.

One Photojournalist we would like to highlight is Newsha Tavakolian, Newsha is a self-taught photographer who at the age of 21 began covering wars internationally, as well as natural disasters and was published by magazines such as Newsweek & Time Magazine; and was later hired by National Geographic. Bwlow, are a couple images representing the strength of her work, for more information we recommend you visit: http://www.newshatavakolian.com/
