Cassandra Giraldo
Photographer

Originally from Los Angeles, California, Cassandra Giraldo is an independent photojournalist based in Brooklyn, New York. She has spent the last three years freelancing as a newspaper photographer working regularly for outlets including The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times among others.

She graduated from Skidmore College in 2011 with a BA in International Affairs and French after which she completed the Photojournalism & Documentary Studies program at the International Center of Photography in 2012. She is currently pursuing her masters degree at Columbia Journalism School’s Toni Stabile Center for Investigative Journalism where she hopes to specialize in education reporting.

While she loves the rush of a deadline and the hustle involved in a good spot-news stakeout, protest or parade, Cassandra is also dedicated to working on long-form stories relating to youth counter-culture and issues of coming of age in a globalized world.

When she’s not on assignment, you’ll most likely find her on the streets of Downtown Brooklyn documenting youth after school for her Instagram project @afterschoolproject.

Her work has been exhibited internationally and recognized by various photography organizations including Getty Images, Instagram, American Photography 31, The New York Times Lens Review and the Eddie Adams Workshop. She is a member of Visura’s GUILD.
