Rena Effendi

Photographer

Award-winning photographer Rena Effendi focuses her lens on documenting people and cultures as well as issues of conflict, environment, and social justice. Rena’s first international exhibition debuted in Berlin in 2002, and ever since that visit, she has been fascinated with the city’s photographic appeal, bohemian vibe, and post-war legacy. Rena has covered a range of topics for National Geographic magazine, from documenting the agrarian cultures of Eastern Europe to portraying the legacy of Mahatma Gandhi in India. She has also received National Geographic’s All Roads Photography Award, and taught student photo workshops in Prague.
