Vanessa Leroy (b. 1996) is a freelance photographer and photo editor based in Boston, Massachusetts. She holds a BFA in Photography from Massachusetts College of Art and Design, and is currently a Photo Editing Intern at NPR. She remains on the hunt
for new ways of seeing, remembering, and altering the world through photography.
She is drawn to image-making because of the power it holds to create nuanced representation for marginalized people and uplift their stories. She sees photography
tool for social justice, and with it, she hopes to create worlds that people feel as though they can enter and draw from, as well as provide a look into an experience that they may not personally recognize.
