September Dawn Bottoms

I am a self taught documentary photographer in Los Angeles. After taking classes at a local community college to understand the ethics of photojournalism,  I dove head first into personal projects. I primarily focus on women’s issues and family dynamics. Currently, I am working on a personal story  about the relationship between my single mother and sister who is on the spectrum. I am also working on a long term series on sex workers as their lives unfold outside of their jobs. The project was awarded Bronze Domestic Photo Story for College Photographer of the Year.

This year I attended Eddie Adams Workshop and I have been nominated for PDN‘s 30: New and Emerging Photographers to watch.

My work has been published in Wall Street Journal, Vanity Fair, The Guardian and People Magazine among others.
