Gratiane de Moustier is a French award winning documentary photographer currently based in Los Angeles, California. She worked in Finance in New York before graduating from the International Centre of Photography in NYC and the London College of Communication.
Her most recent work is focused on social issues around the world with a strong emphasis on women’s rights. She feels pulled towards countries where women are especially vulnerable. Gratiane’s aim is to shed light on situations that would otherwise remain untold.
She choses to immerse herself in long term projects, in order to have the opportunity to unearth the personal stories behind major issues and share them with the world.
Gratiane’s work has been published in major
publications such as Paris-Match, The New York Times, Le Monde
Magazine, Photo District News, Marie Claire, The British Journal of Photography and Days Japan among others. Her clients also include the International Committee of the Red Cross.

Photography Student Category at the New York Photo
Festival. The same year she was commended for the
Ian Parry Scholarship. http://gratianedemoustier.com/bio/ http://gratianedemoustier.com/bio/In 2010 she was nominated by
