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/

Photojournalism Hub presents Carly Clarke, Francesca Gabbiadini and Rasmus Flindt Pedersen.
Carly Clarke is a British documentary and portrait photographer working primarily with medium format film. After completing her BA in photography at Middlesex University, London she was awarded the Luck-Hille Postgraduate Photography scholarship for her Master’s degree in Photography, also at Middlesex. Her work mainly focuses on social and political issues that may otherwise go unnoticed. Storytelling through the voices of the people she photographs is key to her work. She has personally researched, organised and sought funding for all of her overseas projects, which include – Remember Me: Vancouver’s DTES, Godhūlikāla: India’s Forgotten Elders and Jamadagni’s Temple: The Real Full Moon Festival. When she was diagnosed with Hodgkin Lymphoma in 2012, she created a self-portrait project, Reality Trauma, documenting her journey through treatment and recovery. She subsequently created a second project, In the Blood, seven years later when her younger brother Joe was diagnosed with the same type of cancer. Reality Trauma has been widely commended and has been featured worldwide on BBC News Online, BBC TV local news, photography podcasts, and a radio show. She has won several honourable mentions for her projects through the International Photography Awards (IPA) and has been shortlisted for the Portrait of Britain. Her work has been published by the BBC, in the British Journal of Photography, Portrait of Britain, the charity Lymphoma Action, International Photography Awards (IPA), Suitcase Magazine, Jornal Contacto, POV Magazine (Canada), Lensculture, Portrait Salon and has been shown at the National Portrait Gallery in London. www.carlyclarkephotography.co.uk

Francesca Gabbiadini is a photojournalist from Italy. She reports on socio cultural taboos related to femininity and female identities into current society. Her two major ongoing projects are “The Call of Eve”, focused on female rage and the places where it can be expressed, and “Because”, a participatory archive on female identities. After the Master’s in Documentary Photography and Photojournalism at the University of Westminster (2018), she has been working as a freelance photojournalist in London. She collaborates with international and national media outlets, such as La Repubblica and Elle magazine. Francesca’s projects have been shown in various exhibitions between Italy and London, such as the group exhibition at the International Centre of Photography in Palermo (2021) led by Letizia Battaglia. In March 2022 she co-founded Femminsista, an international and intersectional feminist community on Instagram, where she works as an Editor-in-Chief. In May 2019, Francesca led the first workshop on documentary photography in Bergamo, Italy, with the editorial goal to ethically report the community of one of the city’s most multicultural neighbourhoods. www.francescagabbiadini.com

Rasmus Flindt Pedersen (40) is a Danish photojournalist, documentary filmmaker and father of two with 10+ years of experience documenting the world around him. He has won several awards for his work and has had his images exhibited in places like London, New York, Tokyo, Paris and Copenhagen. His work in the world’s hotspots has focused more on depicting the everyday struggle of civilians trapped in the war zones than on the actual fighting. It’s not that the dramatic photos of combat aren’t important to him, it’s just that he finds the struggles of regular people much more impactful. Rasmus’ latest war assignment brought him to Ukraine to document the initial phases of the Russian invasion at the beginning of the year. During the summer Rasmus has spent more time home to focus on his own family and the birth of his second son before he’ll start work on a documentary film project early next year. www.flindtpedersen.com
