Preston Gannaway (b. 1977) is a Pulitzer Prize-winning documentary photographer and filmmaker. For 15 years, she has focused on intimate stories about American families and marginalized communities while addressing themes such as gender identity, class and our relationship to the natural world.

Gannaway is best known for her long-term projects like Remember Me, which chronicled a family coping with a parent’s terminal illness and was awarded the 2008 Pulitzer Prize for feature photography.

Her work has also been honored by Pictures of the Year International, NPPA’s Best of Photojournalism, Critical Mass, American Photography and Communication Arts. She’s been supported by grants from the Chris Hondros Fund Award, The Documentary Project Fund, NPPA and the Economic Hardship Reporting Project.

Editorial clients include New York Times Magazine, Mother Jones, ESPN, ProPublica, Washington Post and AARP among others.

Born and raised in North Carolina, she now lives in Oakland, California. Gannaway’s photographs are held in both public and private collections and have been exhibited around the world. She is a regular lecturer, often serving as guest faculty in educational workshops.

Her first book, Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, about the changing character of a seaside neighborhood along the Chesapeake Bay, was released in 2014.
