Rebecca Conway


I am a British photographer based in New Delhi, India, and have covered South Asia for the last ten years. Before moving to India, I spent six years living and working in Pakistan as a text journalist for local and international media, after arriving in the country while following the Silk Route overland through Asia. I began subediting on an English-language national paper in Lahore, and went on to work for Newsweek Pakistan, The National and IRIN, focusing on stories centering around minorities, women, and the consequences for IDP and refugee populations as a result of the conflict in Afghanistan. Between 2010 and 2012 I worked as a correspondent for Reuters, based in their Islamabad bureau, and moved to India in 2013 to begin working as a photo editor for Agence France-Presse. I am currently working on a long-term independent project documenting civilian PTSD and trauma in Indian-administered Kashmir. In 2017 this work was awarded the Marilyn Stafford Fotoreportage Award and the Biennial Grant, and shortlisted for the Festival of Ethical Photography’s World Report Master Award. I have photographed in Pakistan, India, Nepal and Afghanistan for international clients and have exhibited work internationally. SOCIAL MEDIA Twitter: @rebeccajconway Instagram: @rebeccajconway
