Christina Goldbaum is a freelance photographer and producer based in Mogadishu, Somalia. She has worked across the region covering stories from al-Shabab's attack on Kenya's Garissa University to the female fighters on the frontlines of Somalia and migrants making the journey from North Africa across the Mediterranean.
She works with clients including VICE News Tonight and VICE Weekly on HBO, Agence France-Presse, AJ+, Foreign Policy Magazine, USA Today, Quartz, the Christian Science Monitor, News Deeply, OZY Magazine, and Africa Geographic as well as independent documentary production companies. She believes in the power of storytelling to break down the barriers and bridge the divides between people and so through all of her work, her goal remains the same: to find under-reported stories in seemingly far corners of the world and make them resonate their audience as deeply as possible.
Her reporting on peacekeeping in Somalia was shortlisted for the One World Media Awards in 2017 and her documentary work on gang violence in the United States won a Grand Prize from the Atavist Magazine's Digital Storymakers Competition for Multimedia Journalism in 2013. She is a member of Women Photograph and the Frontline Freelance Register and her photography is represented by Redux Pictures. She speaks Swahili and Spanish fluently as well as basic Somali and is available for assignments worldwide.
