Sanne Derks is a Dutch freelance photojournalist and anthropologist, mainly focused on social documentary projects in Latin America. She is a member of Women Photograph. Her work is published in international media such as The Guardian, El País, Deutsche Welle and Al Jazeera. Currently she is working on a long-term project on Cuba's hidden water crisis, funded by the Dutch Fund for Special Journalist Projects and Fonds Anna Cornelis for documentary photographers.

She is holding a Master in the Psychology of Culture and Religion (2003) and a PhD in Cultural Anthropology and Gender Studies (2009). Her dissertation focused on the ways women dealt with poverty, domestic violence and ethnic exclusion at a Bolivian pilgrimage shrine. After her PhD she moved towards a more visual way of storytelling and made the documentary 'Mary in Times of Crisis' featuring the protagonists of her dissertation, while simultaneously working as a lecturer in Applied Psychology. In 2015-2016 she did a postgraduate in Photojournalism at the UAB in Barcelona and started as a freelance international storyteller, mixing anthropological themes and methods with photography.
