Rahima Gambo is an artist and photographer who came to artistic practice by working independently on long-form transmedia documentary projects. Currently, she explores a rehabilitative moving photography through the experimental capabilities of "walking" as it intersects with documentary storytelling psycho-spiritual-geography, socio-politics, public space and autobiography. She incorporates collaborative practices, sculpture, installation and performance in her work.

She was recently named a FOAM Talent for 2020 and in 2018 she was a World Press Photo 6x6 global talent. She was shortlisted for Contemporary African Photography Prize 2020 and part of the World Press Photo Joop Swart Masterclass, Goethe Institut Photographer’s masterclass in Johannesburg in 2017. She has completed fellowships with the Magnum Foundation, Open Society Foundation Documentary Photography, and the International Women's Media Fund.
