Thana Faroq is a Yemeni documentary photographer and storyteller, based in the Netherlands. Her work aims to achieve a personal reportage that negotiates themes of memory, boundaries, and violence. She focuses on collaborative storytelling projects to tell personal anecdotes of displacement and migration.
In 2016, she was awarded Break the Silence scholarship to pursue M.A. in Documentary Photography and Photojournalism at the University of Westminster in London. Previously, Thana worked with various international NGOs in Yemen to tell stories of displacement women and children, portraying the suffering and highlighting on the forgotten crisis there. Her work has appeared in several publications including Aljazeera, World Press Photo, BBC, Huffington Post, CNN, and others.
Recently, Thana was awarded The Open Society Foundations fellowship grant and exhibition on her ongoing project The Passport.
