Natalie Keyssar is a documentary photographer based in Brooklyn, New York.
After receiving a BFA in Painting from the Pratt Institute in 2009, she pursued photojournalism, which fused her love for visual storytelling with her deep interest in youth culture, and political movements.
Much of her personal work has focused on the themes of class inequality, and the personal effects of political turmoil. She has explored topics from the intersection of subculture and gangs in Brooklyn, to occupied life in Western Sahara, from White Supremacist militias on the US Border with Mexico, to the Black Lives Matter Movement, from infant mortality in Burma to Hip Hop in Eastern DRC. She is currently working on a long term project about daily life in Venezuela after the death of Hugo Chavez.
Natalie’s work has been published by Time, The New York Times, Bloomberg Business Week, The Wall Street Journal, California Sunday Magazine, Le Monde M, and MSNBC among many others, and awarded by organizations like PDN 30, Magenta Flash Forward, American Photography, Reportage by Getty Images, The NPPA, The International Color Awards, and The Association for Healthcare Journalists. She is a Pulitzer Center Grantee and a long term fellow with the International Women’s Media Foundation Latin America program.
