Driely Schwartz

The Outspoken Photographer on the Rise

To reach the top of your field, you have to take risks. And for photographer Driely Schwartz that risk-taking started with a bang when she left her native Brazil for New York City, sight unseen. Schwartz discovered her knack for photography soon afterward when a fortuitous internship led to her shooting at New York Fashion Week. Her unique cocktail of major hustle and major chops soon grew her clout—and then to stardom. Today, Schwartz calls Brooklyn her home and counts celebrities like Beyoncé, Kanye West and Alexander Wang as clients and fans. She also uses her platform to speak out against sexism and inequality.
