Tanya Habjouqa (b. 1975, Jordan) was raised between Texas and the Middle East and has earned a reputation for documentary that brings politics and creative vision into the same frame. With a focus on gender, identity, and sociopolitical issues in the Middle East, there is always a layer of gravitas and an intuitive sense of metaphor beneath her work. Tanya is an artist, educator, and member of NOOR Images. In recent years, her projects have been commended by the likes of World Press Photo, Time, and the Smithsonian. She is a mentor for the Arab Photography Documentary Program and teaches workshops internationally. Tanya is trained in journalism and anthropology with a Masters in Global Media and emphasis on Middle East Politics from the University of London, SOAS. Her work has been exhibited worldwide and is in the permanent collections of the MFA Boston, the Institut du Monde Arabe, and the Carnegie Museum of Art.
