Photojournalism Hub presents Natisha Mallick and Samira Oulaillah to the 30th edition of the Photojournalism Nights event at The Invention Rooms, Imperial College London.
Both award winning photographers work on under-reported topics that need incredible courage and access to be able to tell, including Natisha’ stories on Muslim men being falsely implicated in terror cases and the challenges of child birth in India, and Samira’s project ‘Breaking the Silence’, exploring the testimonies of former Israeli soldiers who quit the army to join an organization called “Breaking the Silence” – founded in 1995 by former soldiers- who decided to testify against their own actions in the occupied territories.
Natisha Mallick is a computer engineer by education and a documentary photographer who focused her work on under-reported stories in India. She hopes that her images contribute to the public enhancement of unbalanced situations. Her work has been published in Spiegel Online, The Wire, The Quint, Fountain Ink Magazine, The Irish Times, Scroll, Catch News, Private Photo Review and L’ oeil de la photographie. Shortlisted twice for the Marilyn Stafford Foto Reportage Award in 2018 & 2017 for her work on Muslim Men falsely implicated in terror cases. Natisha’s work on Child Births in Rural India was awarded the Child Survival Media Award by National Foundation for India and Save the children and was also shortlisted for the Photocrati Fund. She was the recipient of the Neel Dongre Grant by India Photo Archive Foundation and the Oslo University College Grant. Interested in Data Stories, Natisha is transitioning into the tech/data space and presently working towards her Masters in Big Data Science from Queen Mary University of London. http://natishamallick.com/
Samira Oulaillah, a French filmmaker and documentary photographer, has extensively worked in the last ten years on global issues related to war, refugees, gender issues, child poverty and racial discrimination, producing numerous documentaries for international cable television and presenting documentary photography for various media outlets and NGOs. She has widely travelled across the world to shoot hard-hitting documentaries and immersive photographic reportages that give a voice to the voiceless and a face to the forgotten. Samira holds an MA in Documentary Photography & Photojournalism (UAL London College of Communication) and an MA in Social History (Winchester University). She is currently preparing a PhD with the Sorbonne University in Paris and working on the impact of white colonial photography in West Africa on the representation of native people and the revival of African identity and collective memory through the work of contemporary Malian photographer Malick Sidibé and Senegalese photographer Oumar Ly. https://samira.photoshelter.com/
