Eman Mohammed is a 21 year old photojournalist and blogger based in Gaza City. She seeks to portray the positive potential of the Gaza Strip despite the harsh realities she documents through her photography.

During the Elders' first visit to the Middle East in August 2009, Eman participated via telephone from Gaza in the Elders' webcast, which was broadcast live from Jerusalem and brought together young Israelis and Palestinians to discuss their fears and hopes for the future.

Eman Mohammed is a photojournalist based in Gaza city, and has a bachelor’s degree from the Islamic University of Gaza in journalism and public relations. She was nominated for the Joop Swart Masterclass – World Press Photo 2009. Her photography has been featured in several prominent international media publications. Additionally, she has worked as a freelance photojournalist with organisations including the World Bank, Save the Children, UNFPA, and MAP.
