Diana Cervantes is a Hispanic Independent Visual Journalist based in Brooklyn, New York relocated from her hometown of Albuquerque, New Mexico where she graduated from the University of New Mexico. Some of her work has been featured nationally through Buzzfeed News, Bitterroot Magazine and National Geographic Your Shot. She believes the most rewarding aspect of being a photojournalist is the bonds and connections you form with individuals in all walks of life. In 2018, she was selected to attend the Women Photograph Workshop in Brooklyn, N.Y. and in the same year her image was selected for National Geographic’s Your Shot best photos of the year. Her work has primarily focused in documenting local communities and traditions. Currently, her work has begun to shift toward long-form storytelling in conservation efforts and human/animal relationships. She is also a member of the Authority Collective photo community.
