Mohamed Badarne

Born in Galilee, Mohamed Badarne has been a social activist since he was a teenager. Until 2012, when he received his diploma in photography, he worked as a school teacher and NGO worker. Since then, Mohamed has dedicated his professional life solely to photography - as an artist, trainer, activist, and curator.

He works with international organisations, NGOs, and communities to conduct workshops on social photography, visual campaigning, and investigative photojournalism. For his own projects, he received grants from renowned art foundations and human rights organisations. His projects ‘Come Back Safely’, ‘Forgotten Team’, and ‘Crack 708’ were exhibited, among others, in Amman, Beirut, Berlin, Brussels, Geneva, and New York.
