Isadora Kosofsky

Isadora Kosofsky (b. 1993, USA) is an award-winning documentary photographer based in Los Angeles. She began photographing at the age of 14, documenting individuals in hospice care. She takes an immersive approach to storytelling, spending months and years embedded in the lives of the people she shadows. Her method is to become a part of the group she is documenting, to study communities as an occupant rather than a visitor.

Isadora has contributed to the The New York TimesTIME, The New York Times MagazineThe New YorkerThe Washington PostSternLe MondeGEO GermanyParis MatchThe Times (UK), and many others.

She is the recipient of the 2012 Inge Morath Award from the Magnum Foundation for her multi-series work on the aged. She was nominated for a 2016 Lead Award (German Pulitzer) for Senior Love Triangle. She is a recipient of a 2018 grant from the Pulitzer Center for Crisis Reporting for her ongoing work on girl survivors of complex trauma. As a TED Fellow, Isadora is part of a network of 450 global change makers and gave a talk on documentary photography at TED 2018 in Vancouver.
