Nadia Ferroukhi lives in Paris. Born of a Czech mother and an Algerian father, a nomad since her childhood. Today, as a documentary photographer and a visual storyteller, she travels the planet armed with her camera, expressing herself through reports that she publishes in the French and international press, such as Geo, Le Monde, Marie Claire, Bayard Presse, Courrier International , Unesco ... She exhibits in festivals, galleries and international museums such as Visa pour l'Image, the Quai Branly Museum, the Bamako Biennale ...

Multilingual and curious, her "3rd eye" and her empathy allow her to combine all the aspirations that have animated her since childhood.

Her photographic approach highlights the richness and the differences that make up the world and especially those in the shadows. Her images tell the stories of all those who, through their distinction, contribute to the diversity of the planet. Over the years, she has built long-term stories, with a particular focus on the status of women in the world.

Nadia created the Douniatou association in 2008 to help Tumaï, a village of women in Kenya. Tumaï is part of her latest long term story Les Matriarches.
