Lina Geoushy


Lina Geoushy is an Egyptian social documentary photographer based between London and Cairo. She combines her experience in communication & psychology to tell stories that deconstruct and question the public's perception of the prevailing power of patriarchy.  Her work largely explores gender, sociopolitical, and women empowerment issues. She strives to push the boundaries through her work by exploring rarely documented communities and ineffable topics. Geoushy’s practice is research-led and her projects are self-initiated. She nurtures connections and collaborations with people that serve to empower them, providing a platform to tell their stories. Her award-winning project Breadwinners is focused on the significant role Egyptian women play, working as housekeepers, in supporting their own families as well as being a cornerstone in the lives of other families, whilst battling patriarchy and an unjust legal system. A wide variety of organizations worldwide have recognized and supported her projects through awards and exhibitions such as Lens Culture, The Guardian, and Vice. She was awarded Documentary Photographer of The Year by The Royal Photographic Society in 2019. Lina is currently completing her MA in Documentary Photography and Photojournalism at the London College of Communication.
