Ty Faruki


Based in London, I'm a British-Pakistani portrait photographer working with studios and editorial clients. Beginning in 2015, I spent time in Ukraine where I covered the conflict in Donbas, concurrently working with NGOs and UN agencies including UNHCR in Somalia, Iraq, Rwanda, and Jordan.

Some notable credits include New Statesman, Complex Magazine, Financial Times, The Irish Times, The Telegraph, Business Insider, The Times, iNews, The New Humanitarian, Huffington Post, Line of Best Fit, Wonderland Mag, Clash Magazine, Evening Standard, and The Independent.
