Julie Dermansky (b. 1966, New York City) is a transdisciplinary artist whose work is focused on documenting society’s impact on the natural world and social injustice. Her work raises awareness of environmental issues, and draws a connection between social injustice and climate change. She has documented the aftermath of earthquakes and storms, the military-industrial complex in Iraq, and the expansion of the industrial landscape across the country, uncovering information overlooked by the mainstream media. Dermansky is an affiliate scholar at the Rutgers University Center for the Study of Genocide and Human Rights. Her photographs have been published internationally, and her reports are published by The Atlantic, Al Jazeera, The Guardian, Truthout, and the Desmog Blog, among others. Her series "Fracking in the USA" was screened at the 2015 Visa pour l’Image, Perpignan’s International Festival of Photojournalism.
