Natalie Naccache is a British-Lebanese photojournalist based in Beirut, Lebanon. She has a BA in Photojournalism from London College of Communication, and obtained a Diploma of Art Foundation from Camberwell College of Art.
As a child, Natalie’s mother took photographs and video footage to send to Natalie's grandparents in Lebanon. When her grandmother passed away in 1996, Natalie took on the role of documenting her family.
Having grown up to Lebanese parents in London, Natalie’s work endeavors to challenge preconceived ideas of the Middle East. Her first photo story, Kteer Jeune, documented how Lebanese females took care of their appearances across all generations. An Image from this series was exhibited at the Foto8 summer show 2011.
Natalie’s photo stories, to date, have focused on modern day society in Lebanon and England. Of her work she says, “I try to document positive changes and transitions, to enlighten my audience with modern issues that people don't see, and to challenge their expectations. As much as war stories are important in the Middle East, I believe it is important to document everyday society in the Arab world.”
Whilst at university Natalie assisted staff photographer David Levene, as well as Felix Clay at The Guardian. She also interned at The Sunday Times Magazine, Monocle and The Guardian picture desks. Her work has been published in The National, The Sunday Times Magazine, Der Spiegel, BBC, F2 Magazine, Beyond Magazine, RearView Mirror and Foto8.
