Born in Algiers in 1968, Zohra was recruited as a stringer photographer for Reuters by Mallory Langsdon in 1997 during the last years of the conflict in Algeria. In 2000, Zohra was sent on her first assignment abroad for Reuters to Macedonia where ethnic Albanians were taking refuge from Serbian forces. In 2003 she went to Iraq while Saddam was still on the run. In Najaf, Iraq, in 2004 Zohra was made staff photographer from Reuters. Zohra won the European Union prize for the best African press photographer in 2005. Still based in Algiers she continues to cover some African and Middle East countries.

This is really inspiring. As an Arab female photojournalist, I am very
moved by her pictures and I think she has proven women in the Arab
World do have a place in this industry.
It’s also interesting, that behind news events and conflicts, how
Zohra captured the different aspects of what it is like to be a woman
in the Arab world.

I saw each and every pictures. Many of the pictures speak itself without caption. Zohra must have strong courage and to take these pictures through her special skills and technique of photography. Really appreciable. Keep it up.
