Biography

Nadia Ferroukhi lives in Paris. A nomad since her childhood, born of a Czech mother and an Algerian father, she travels the planet armed with a camera, and expresses herself through stories that she exhibits or publishes in the French and international press.

Multilingual and curious, her “3rd eye”, allowed her to combine all the aspirations that animate her. She graduated in international relations from Washington D.C.

Her approach on differences brings to light those who are in the shadows. Her images tell stories by creating a link between all those who by their distinctness contribute to the richness and diversity of the planet. Over the years she has been building long-term reportages, with a particular emphasis on the status of women in the world.

Nadia created the Douniatou association in 2008 in order to help Tumaï, a village of women in Kenya. Tumaï is part of her latest long term story: Female power, “the last women's societies".
