Highlighting 36 Freelance Visual Storytellers Worldwide Coming Into 2022
curated by laura oliverio for the visura blog
Jan 13, 2022

Visura is delighted to welcome the new year by highlighting 36 visual storytellers and journalists from 16 countries. Curated by Visura Mentee Laura Oliverio—this feature aims to inspire as well as inform audiences through unique, compelling visual storytelling.


At a time when fostering empathy and kindness can really have an impact on peoples' lives and perception of life—we thank freelance visual journalists for sharing their most in-depth and unique visual stories with our community.


"All of these were such genuine stories that truly dug deeper than the surface. Beyond important, they are meaningful and impactful,"—Laura Oliverio.

We hope this feature encourages editors in newsrooms and organizations to connect with new work and talent worldwide. Each selection was found through the Visura database, which consists of posts, visual stories, and images shared by Visura members.
