Nada, 24, Bagdad - The 2006 civil war broke and we were suddenly forced to leave everything behind. I was brutally unrooted from everything I knew and forced to live in constant fear.

Born in 1992, Chloe is bathed early in an artistic environment in which images are considered as a privileged medium to convey emotions and commitments. She first enrolls in Art History studies in Lyon, specializing in the artistic trends of the 14th to the 17th century, a field still deeply influencing the aesthetics of her work today. She then concludes her education with Cinema Studies in Paris, specialized in aesthetics and documentary making.

Motivated by a dire need to bear witness of the world’s turmoil, she decides in 2017 that her medium will be photography.

After a year working regularly in Lebanon among Lebanese, Syrian and Palestinian women, Chloe pushes a step further her commitments and creates the association “Alhawiat”, promoting the role of women in the reconstruction of post-conflictual societies in the Middle-East through conferences and discussion panels in France.

Since then, she continues focusing on the Middle-East and women’s rights, through stories exploring violence in all of its forms. In 2019, her commitment to women's rights takes her to India, where she produces the story "Sugar Girls" about coerced hysterectomies, that will be exhibited at Visa Pour L'image the following year and awarded with grants from the CNAP (Centre National des Arts Plastiques), La Scam and the French Ministry of Culture. 

Her work has been published in the international press such as Newsweek Japan, The Washington Post, Libération, Le Temps, Neue Zurcher Zeitung...
