Rachael Cerrotti is an independent photographer, writer and educator. Her work focuses on documenting stories of grief, resilience, and the perception of home. She holds a degree in Communications from Temple University and is an alumni of The Rothberg International School at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
For nearly a decade, Rachael has been pursuing her long-term project, Follow My Footprints, retracing her grandmother's route of displacement during and in the wake of World War II. The story, which travels through Central Europe, Scandinavia and across the United States, is an intergenerational approach to understanding life, death, and the will to move forward in the face of uncertainty.
She has won multiple awards from the NPPA’s Northern Short Course in Photojournalism annual contest and is a recipient of The Lori Minden Tancer Award from Momenta Workshops.
She is based in New England and Denmark.
