About Lalage Snow

Award winning freelance photojournalist, writer and filmmaker Lalage Snow has covered war and unrest in the Middle East and Afghanistan since 2007, making Kabul her home for over five years. There, she worked for a variety of publications including The Sunday Times, The FT, The Telegraph and Granta, to name but a few. She has also worked in Gaza, The West Bank, Israel, Eastern Ukraine, Bangladesh, Jordan and Iraq.


She has written her first book, War Gardens, which will be published by Quercus in 2018 and explores current conflicts through the peaceful act of gardening.


An original, creative and intrepid storyteller, she often combines journalism and art on personal projects many of which have been exhibited around the world to critical acclaim. She singlehandedly produced, filmed and directed her first film ‘Afghan Army Girls’ for Channel 4 and in 2016 a series of her films and photographs were on display at The Smithsonian Museum in Washington DC. Most recently she produced, filmed, directed and narrated ‘The Gardeners of Kabul’, a half hour documentary for the BBC. Her aim has always been to give people a voice.
