Women Photojournalists of Washington
Washington, DC, USA
A freelance photographer based in the Washington, DC area since 1992, Jocelyn has combined her passion for photography and her fascination with politics to work for political campaigns with mayoral all the way up to presidential candidates nationwide.
Inspired by the master photographers who worked for the Farm Security Administration in the 1930s, Jocelyn also wanted to document history. She discovered that outlet by deploying with the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s Urban Search and Rescue teams as they responded to numerous natural disasters nationwide. Jocelyn documented the important work the agency carried out after the 9/11 terrorist attacks and Hurricane Katrina. Her work for the agency, spanning over 20 years, is now part of the historical record in the National Archives.
Jocelyn holds a BA in International Relations from Simmons College in Boston. A native of Gardner, Massachusetts, Jocelyn worked for daily newspapers in Massachusetts (Fitchburg Sentinel, Gardner News, and Worcester Telegram) before moving to the Washington, DC area.
Jocelyn’s work has appeared in publications worldwide including Time Magazine, The Guardian, USA Today, Newsweek, The New York Times Magazine and Rolling Stone Magazine.
