Rinad Norein's parents are from Sudan, and moved to Sweden shortly before Rinad was born. Rinad returned to Khartoum at the age of 19 to study medicine. Despite graduating as a doctor Rinad discovered a passion for photography. She is parciularly interested in identity, recently completing a series on Sudanese creatives. Rinad says "I like to take pictures of things and moments that stand out to me, whether it’s a red window or encounters with kindhearted people."
In war-torn countries the vast majority of professional photographers work for news agencies. This means their work is often focused on coverage of conflict. Our project is motivated by the opportunity to give talented photographers an entirely new outlet for their work. Through this project we hope to reveal a side to war-torn countries rarely seen in the international media.
