Nariman El-Mofty is a photojournalist based in Cairo.
After five years photo editing in addition to photographing for the Associated Press Middle East photo desk, Nariman became a staff photojournalist. She tells visual stories in the region – on subjects ranging from the antiquities of Egypt, Arab Spring protests, the annual Hajj in 2016, migration, and the horrors of wars.  El-Mofty has covered Yemen, highlighting the humanity of people struggling to survive amid a society in collapse. In 2019, she was part of an Associated Press team that won the Pulitzer Prize for international reporting for work uncovering the effects of Yemen's devastating war. She also received the Overseas Press Club’s Olivier Rebbot Award for her Yemen photo reportage. She was awarded the Robert Capa citation for excellence for “Disembarking in Hell” on the dangerous journey of Ethiopian migrants – crossing the sea to Yemen and then making their way to Saudi Arabia. In 2020 she travelled to the Sudanese-Ethiopian border to document the Tigray people who take shelter by the thousands within sight of the homeland they fled in northern Ethiopia and was awarded the citation in the Robert Capa Gold Medal Award for “Fleeing War.” The work was also exhibited in the International Festival of Photojournalism 2021 in Perpignan ‘Visa pour l'image.’ Most recently El-Mofty was  part of an AP team covering Russia's invasion of Ukraine which was awarded a Pulitzer Prize for Breaking News Photography for its heart-wrenching visual coverage of the horrors of the Russia-Ukraine war since the start of the war in February 2022.
