Christo Geoghegan (b. 1988) is a queer, British & Irish documentary photographer, filmmaker and visual journalist based in London, UK.

Recently he completed his first book, 'Witch Hunt Vol I: The Banished of Balsapuerto'. The first instalment of a larger body of work investigating the global rise in human rights abuses through "harmful practices related to manifestations of belief in witchcraft". In 2018, he was invited to the United Nations in Geneva to take part in the organisation's first experts meeting to acknowledge and discuss the epidemic and has since gone to speak extensively about the topic at other high-profile institutions. 'Witch Hunt Vol. I: The Banished of Balsapuerto' was shortlisted for the Luma Rencontres Dummy Book Award Arles (2020), the Images Vevey Book Award (2021) and the MACK First Book Award (2021).
