Claire Thomas is a photojournalist hailing from Carmarthenshire but now travelling the world capturing images that document human rights issues and conflict zones. Self-taught, Claire's photography has been featured in numerous publications including National Geographic Magazine, Geographical Magazine and Al Jazeera English.

Claire is one of a rare breed of young female photojournalists working in dangerous conflict zones such as the Middle East and Palestine. Ffoton welcomed the opportunity to meet her during a short visit back in Wales before setting off for assignments in Iraq.


Y mae Claire Thomas yn newyddiadurwraig  ffotograffig yn hanu o Sir Gaerfyrddin ac yn teithio'r byd yn tynnu lluniau sy'n dogfennu materion yn ymwneud a hawliau dynol ac mewn ardaloedd lle mae gwrthdaro a rhyfel. Y mae gwaith Claire wedi ymddangos mewn sawl cyhoeddiad gan gynnwys National Geographic, Geographic Magazine ac Al Jazeera English.

Y mae Claire yn rhan o grŵp bychan o ferched sy'n gweithio yn ardaloedd peryglus y byd sef y Dwyrain Canol a Palesteina. Fe gafodd Ffoton y fraint o sgwrsio gyda Claire tra ar ymweliad byr yw chartref a chyn iddi fynd ar aseiniad i Irac.
