About the Journalist

Rachel Wisniewski is an independent photojournalist and writer based in Philadelphia, PA, USA.

Her work often explores stories at the intersections of community, identity and trauma — including topics that personally affect her such as hearing loss, Jewish identity, and the #MeToo movement. She has six years of professional experience and is a regular contributor to publications including: Reuters, The New York Times, The Washington Post, NPR, and more.

She was a Gwen Ifill Fellow through the International Women’s Media Foundation in 2020, and was a mentee in The Center at the Anderson Ranch (led by Ed Kashi and Jim Estrin) from 2020-2022. She received a grant from the National Geographic Society in 2021, and grants from the International Women’s Media Foundation and the Solutions Journalism Network in 2022.

Beyond photography, Wisniewski is passionate about volunteering, traveling, reading, and food. When she doesn’t have a camera in her hands, it’s probably because she’s eating pizza.
