Raquel Natalicchio is a photographer from Los Angeles, CA, now based in Houston, TX as a staff visual journalist for The Houston Chronicle. Raquel documents social issues, community-driven stories, political mobilization, and migration across the US/Mexico border. Her work focuses on the universality of humanity, including themes of love, struggle, resilience, and community. She is working on a long-term project called “Borderlands” that explores the rich diversity of experiences in border communities along the US/Mexico border.

Raquel discovered photography in an after-school arts program, which changed her life. As a result, one of her passions is working in education and has developed photography curricula centered around themes like self-love for teen girls. She is passionate about community building and has produced several talks, panel discussions, and exhibitions for the Los Angeles, CA, photographic community.

Raquel is a Women Photograph, Diversify Photo, and The National Press Photographers Association member.
