Salwa Farah

Photographer + Writer

Sometimes those who wander are lost. While her inner GPS appears to be damaged in the greater context of geographical space, it has nonetheless lead Salwa to discover new places in both familiar and new settings. Navigating in this world with utmost spite and disregard to the little blue arrow on her smart phone allows her to see the ordinary, every day sights from an unexpected perspective. Salwa approaches photography and writing with that same sense of discovery, bringing a unique point of view to all her encounters. And in case you are wondering, yes, she always reaches her destination – but never the same way twice.

A background as a journalist with an honors degree in communications gives Salwa a solid foundation in both writing editorial content and complimenting it with a strong visual context. As a published writer and photographer, Salwa has written and edited feature articles, captured and contributed cover photographs and collaborated with media outlets to tell compelling stories.

Having spent the last 14 years working in the recreational marine industry as a writer and photographer has provided Salwa with unique opportunities to travel the world and to experience places, culture and nature in non-traditional ways. While the sequence of events that led to her diverse set of skills has admittedly not been conventional, in this case, you can truly say that the journey itself is the destination.
