Eman is a Palestinian refugee, born in Saudi Arabia and educated in Gaza City, Palestine, where she started her photojournalism career at the age of 19.

Her work has been focused for the past decade on documenting the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, including military invasions and wars that frequently occur in the area as well as the formation of armed militant groups in the strip.

The main body of Eman’s work has moved from covering Israel's bombing blitz in a hard-news style to a series of long-term and in-depth aftermath projects and women-unraveled stories in culturally sensitive communities.

Her work was published in The Guardian, Le Monde, VICE, Washington Post, Geo International, Mother Jones, and Haartez. It has also been recognized by several international organization and was recently acquired by the British Museum in London, shortly before Eman was announced to be one of the TED Fellows for 2014.
