Natalie Keyssar

Natalie Keyssar is a photojournalist based in Brooklyn, New York. She is a regular contributor to the The Wall Street Journal. Her work has also appeared in Salon, Utne, De Standaard Magazine, and the New York Times, among other publications. She received a BFA from the Pratt Institute in 2008. In 2009, she began to pursue photojournalism, which fused her love for visual storytelling with her deep interest in social justice, and the events, large and small, that shape history. Her personal work has focused on a range of topics, from white supremacists in the United States, to daily life in disputed Western Sahara. Her most recent project, Just for Now: A Year in Tent City, documented a community of homeless people and their battle against eviction in a town with no shelters. Originally published in The Wall Street Journal, it has received awards from American Photography 29, and the National Press Photographer's Association. More work can be seen on her website at
