Nura Qureshi is a photographer, and mixed media visual artist. Her photojournalism practice centers on historical documentation. In 2008, Qureshi was awarded a grant to travel to Cambodia and document survivors of the Khmer Rouge. She has also documented concentration camps in Europe, sites and participants of the Mau Mau resistance in Kenya, and medical missions in Ghana and Guatemala. In her art photography and mixed media work, Qureshi investigates sites and practices connected to humanity’s dark histories, such as those of war, colonialism, and genocide. Based on archival and interview research, Qureshi’s work explores themes related to collective memory, the historical archive, and people’s relationships with their shared past.
