Mariella Furrer, Swiss/Lebanese, was born in Beirut in 1968 and has lived in Africa her whole life. After completing the Documentary Photography & Photojournalism Program at the International Centre of Photography in NYC (1993), she returned to Kenya where she has since been working as a freelance photographer. Mariella has covered Africa extensively and has worked on stories in Europe, the Middle East and Asia. She can communicate in several languages which has proved to be helpful during her travels. She has received two grants (3P & Hasselblad Foundation) and an Honorable Mention from Unicef Photo of the Year 2005 for an ongoing project on child sexual abuse in South Africa.

Mariella has recently completed her project on child sexual abuse which includes photos, artwork, journals, poetry and in-depth interviews with survivors & their families, Perpetrators, Police, Advocates and various people working in the field of child sexual abuse. A book will be out in the spring of 2010

Mariella’s work has appeared in publications such as Time, Newsweek, Life, New York Times, Marie Claire, Outside Magazine, Talk Magazine, Paris Match, Der Spiegel, among others. She has also participated in several book projects and her work has been shown at group exhibitions.
