Agatha Kronberg - Modern Artist
I'm a journalist and photographer currently based in Istanbul, Turkey, but I'm usually working on assignments
I focus on covering news, conflict, climate change, humanitarian crises, security and human rights abuses.
Between 2018 and 2022, I lived in Afghanistan full-time, covering the war during the US-led invasion and, later, the Taliban takeover. I have covered breaking news worldwide, including the aftermath of the 2021 Gaza War, the Lebanon explosion, the arrival of Rohingya people in Bangladesh, the East African drought in Somalia and Kenya, the Lake Chad Basin displacement in Niger, the Nepal earthquake, the Ebola epidemic in Sierra Leone and the Syrian war from across-the-border refugee camps in Jordan.
I was based in South Sudan full-time for almost two years, working for the AFP news agency and winning the Prix Varenne for my photography work.
My clients include AFP, The Guardian, The Economist, Foreign Policy, The Los Angeles Times, The National, Reuters, and The Telegraph, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, among other.
I'm an International Women's Media Foundation fellow and one of Women Photograph's shooters.
I graduated with a Master's Degree in International Journalism from City, University of London, and besides English, I also speaks German, French, Spanish and Farsi.
