Amanda Magnani is a Brazilian journalist and photographer focused on social and environmental issues. After living in seven countries, she returned to Brazil to dedicate herself to documenting the diverse realities that make up her homeland. She approaches her work with a decolonial perspective, and she always seeks to collaborate with the subjects of the narrative. Her work has been featured in National Geographic, Al Jazeera, The New Humanitarian, BBC Brasil, and Folha de São Pualo, among other publications.
Amanda is a master in Journalism, Media and Globalization from Aarhus University, the Danish School of Media and Journalism, and Charles University, and a specialist in Public Policy and Gender Justice from the Latin American Council of Social Sciences. In 2021, she was awarded Climate Tracker’s Online Climate Justice Fellowship to report on COP26 and was selected to be a part of the Solutions Journalism Network mentorship cohort.
In 2023, Amanda received a grant from the Pulitzer Center Rainforest Journalism Fund to develop her project, “Seeds for a sustainable future: Hyperlocal solutions from the Indigenous communities of Serra de Lua," a multimedia project that will document how Wapixana and Macuxi people in Roraima, Brazil, embrace their ancestry by protecting the future of the Amazon forest.
