Fatema Mukarram is a documentary photographer and visual artist based in Melbourne. She chose photography as her medium of expression to be a visual storyteller and highlight the challenges that people face and bring it to light to the wider public.
Mukarram’s imagery seeks to challenge the audience’s comfort level whilst providing an empathetic connection to the subject. Mukarram aims to open a dialogue into the issue she is documenting. Her work allows her to tear down barriers one story at a time, focusing on social injustice issues such as her current project Belong, an ongoing series about her family’s migration to Australia.
In 2019, Mukarram was part of a group exhibition ‘Bound’ at Hillvale Gallery in Brunswick. She is currently undertaking a Bachelor of Photography degree majoring in Photojournalism at Photography Studies College in Melbourne, with her graduation show exhibition coming up in December 2020 which will be held at the Centre for Contemporary Photography at Fitzroy.
