Anastasia Taylor-Lind (2016) is an English-Swedish writer and photographer currently based in the US.
Anastasia has a background in photojournalism and has worked for leading editorial publications all over the world on issues relating to women, population and war. Her first book “MAIDAN – Portraits from the Black Square,” which documents the 2014 Ukrainian uprising in Kiev, was published by GOST books the same year.
Anastasia is a 2016 Harvard Nieman Fellow, a TED fellow and National Geographic Magazine contributor.
Taylor-Lind will spend her time at the Carey Institute writing a book proposal about the visual representation of contemporary warfare today and the photojournalists who cover it. Using narrative nonfiction Taylor-Lind will, in part, draw on her own experiences as a photographer over the last decade, while critically examining the way photographic war stories are collected, constructed and disseminated. She will also explore the myth of the war photographer and her relationship to violence as a woman. Additionally, Taylor-Lind plans to develop a longform excerpt of the text while at the Institute.
