Natalia Jiménez-Stuard

Photo editor at The Washington Post (USA)

Natalia Jiménez-Stuard was born in London and studied Photojournalism at Syracuse University, New York. She is a picture editor on the national desk at The Washington Post, where she covered the Trump presidency and 2020 elections. Before joining The Washington Post, she managed the photography team at NBC News, where she also art directed and commissioned original illustrations. Her work has been recognized by Pictures of the Year International, NPPA’s Best of Photojournalism and the Society of News Design. She has served as a juror for photography and design awards for the Overseas Press Club, American Photography 37, and NPPA’s Best of Photojournalism. In 2019, she was faculty on the first Women Photograph workshop held in Latin America, and participated as a mentor in their 2021 program.

Jiménez-Stuard was drawn to editing while an assistant to photographers Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb, as they developed long-form visual narratives through book publishing. Though she has focused on digital storytelling for most of her career, she retains an appreciation for the tactile experience of photography books, and aims to apply that sensibility to her everyday work.
