New Voices is an event series presenting the work of the photographers who are part of the 2021-2023 VII Mentor Program and The Leica Women Foto Project x VII Mentor Program. The VII Mentor Program is made up of thirteen gifted young photographers with diverse experiences who were chosen from nearly 300 applicants from 65 countries.

The series, hosted by David Campbell and Ilvy Njiokiktjien, showcases the stories the photographers are working on and discusses how they are creating a viable career in visual journalism.

In this episode, we are speaking with Natalia Neuhaus.

Natalia Neuhaus

Natalia Neuhaus is a queer photographer who started her career in Lima, Peru working as a freelance photojournalist for newspapers and magazines. In 2007, she moved to the U.S. to attend the San Francisco Art Institute. Her gaze is deeply influenced by the violence that surrounded her childhood, a country desolated by terrorism, and also by the violence experienced at home. Observing and understanding others became a form of survival that shaped how she photographs; whether it be photographing Baby Boomers aging alone in NYC, or NYC stillness during the Covid shutdown which received an honorable mention at The Julia Margaret Cameron Award in 2021.
