Laura Boushnak

Laura Boushnak is a Kuwaiti-born Palestinian photographer based in Sarajevo. Her work mainly focuses on the Arab world, looking at issues that she finds stem from her own personal experience.

As of 2008, she has been working as an independent photographer, commissioned for editorial assignments by the New York Times and other publications. Boushnak’s main focus has been on her on-going personal projects, “I Read I Write” and “Survivor.” The former revolves around Arab women’s education and literacy, while the latter highlights the aftermath of war. Both projects have received honorable awards and recognition including: the first Getty Images/ lean-in editorial grant, The Terry O’neil Photography Award in the UK, and two honorable mentions in the UNICEF Photo of the Year Award.

Her work has been part of public and private collections, which include the British Museum, and has been exhibited in galleries and museums around the world, such as the Birmingham Museum in the UK, the Sharjah Art Museum in the UAE, and The Arp Museum Bahnhof Ralandseck in Germany. Boushnak is a TED fellow and the co-founder of RAWIYA, the first photo collective in the Middle East.
