About Yana

I am a Bulgaria-born, Chicago-bred, Brooklyn-based photojournalist, editor and writer, driven by a passion for creative visuals, science, technology, climate change, the economic and political state of the world, art, architecture, anthropology, the beauty of the written word, and the true sense of equality. I aim to create and curate visuals with style and meaning — whether in a historic context or just beyond the surface of mundanity. What's more, as an immigrant to U.S. shores, I very much care to bridge humans’ understanding of one another — and most of all, connect the work I do as a woman in a male-dominated industry behind the camera, to how women manage in the world in front of it. My current and past clients, both across the States and the world, have included National Geographic, The Washington Post, The New York Times, Getty Images, Reuters, NPR, The Wall Street Journal, The New Yorker, The Chronicle of Higher Education, THE CITY, Bloomberg, Yahoo News, AFP, Rolling Stone, Nature, Discover, New York magazine, Sports Illustrated, Newsweek, TIME, USA Today and the Chicago Tribune, among others. I have received awards from PDN’s Photo Annual, NPPA, American Photography and TED's Visualizing Climate Change contests; grants to further my projects from the National Geographic Society, the Pulitzer Center, the International Women's Media Foundation, Getty Images + Panasonic Lumix and Leica Camera; and have exhibited my work via Photoville, Leica Camera, the International Center of Photography and Bulgaria's National Gallery of Art. I have also taught journalism and photography courses and led workshops through the Pulitzer Center, Brooklyn Public Library, NYU, The School of The New York Times/Fordham University, and Leica Camera USA. No matter the time zone or topic, you could find me at x or +1.x.
