Daniella Zalcman

Photographer & Founder
Women Photograph

Daniella Zalcman is a documentary photographer based between London and New York. She is a multiple grantee of the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting, a fellow with the International Women's Media Foundation, and the founder of Women Photograph — an organization created to elevate the voices of female, female-identifying, and non-binary visual journalists.

Her work tends to focus on the legacies of western colonization, from the rise of homophobia in East Africa to the forced assimilation education of indigenous children in North America. Her project Signs of Your Identity is the recipient of a 2017 Robert F Kennedy Journalism Award, the Magnum Foundation's 2016 Inge Morath Award, the 2017 Arnold Newman Portrait Prize, and the 2016 FotoEvidence Book Award.

Daniella's work regularly appears in The Wall Street Journal, Mashable, National Geographic, and CNN, among others. Her photos have been exhibited internationally, and select projects are represented by Anastasia Photo Gallery, LUMAS, and Subject Matter. She graduated from Columbia University with a degree in architecture in 2009.
