Tanya Habjouqa (Jordan, 1975) is a Jordanian / Texan documentary photographer and educator. Her work is born out of long-term investments and collaborative methodology, blending ethnographic research and reportage. Known for producing sensitive work underscored by the absurd, her long-term projects focus on gender, representations of otherness, dispossession, and ever-shifting sociopolitical dynamics in MIDEAST. Her «Occupied Pleasures» was heralded by TIME magazine and Smithsonian as one of the best photo books of 2015 (winning her a World Press Photo award in 2014). She mentors emerging photographers from across the Arab region for Magnum Foundation’s «Emerging Arab Photographer Documentary Fund» together with the Prince Claus Foundation and the Arab Fund for Arts and Culture. Tanya is a member of NOOR and one of the founding members of Rawiya, the first all female photo collective of the Middle East. She is based in East Jerusalem.
