Thana Faroq

Thana Faroq is a street photographer and visual storyteller based in Sana'a, Yemen. Faroq was born and raised in Yemen and attended one of the United World Colleges (UWC) in Canada, where she was formally introduced to art classes. Later, she moved to the US where she studied International Relations and photography, and has exhibited work in the US and Yemen.

Faroq aspires to produce direct, truthful, and bold images that tell meaningful stories. Photographing streets is her biggest passion, but the people in her photos never remain strangers. Their stories are assets through which to transform Faroq’s everyday inspiration into evocative and compelling photographs that speak right to the soul. Faroq uses her camera like Alice in Wonderland's rabbit hole – to open an unexplored world, a place of curious self-expression and world of chances and new tales.
