Dimitri Staszewski is a documentary photographer based in Austin, Texas. He’s interested in long-term projects that use intimate and specific storytelling to shed light on relatable and global issues. Cultural preservation is often at the core of his work and bookmaking has become essential to his practice.

In 2015, he was awarded a Fulbright-mtvU Fellowship for his work documenting traditional music performed by nomadic herders. In 2018 he participated in the Joshua Tree Highlands Artist Residency and the 31st Eddie Adams Workshop. In 2021 Dimitri self-published Heart-Shaped Tomatoes, a cookbook about his 102-year-old Italian immigrant grandmother. He is currently finalizing his first photobook, Close to the Bayou which will be published early 2024.
