Deep Indigo Collective

A visual storytelling resource for outlets reporting on the local impacts of the climate crisis.


Deep Indigo Collective’s mission is to provide truthful visual documentation informing discussion around climate change and environmental issues.

About our journalism

Deep Indigo Collective was created as a crucial tool helping to catalyze the climate crisis reporting plans of local newsrooms across the United States. As the mercury hits deadly highs, as hurricanes intensify and as power utilities fail to meet demand, local news sources are a lifeline for communities experiencing climate impacts. Climate reporting is weakened by the continuous loss of local photojournalism resources as audiences require this core reporting tool to come to grasp the story of our lifetime.

The nonprofit’s commitment to community-focused visuals offers our partner newsrooms a powerful tool in delivering powerful content to their audiences. By working with freelance photojournalists nationwide, our storytelling is created in concert with and specifically for the original reporting of our newsrooms partners. By offering our collaborators a one-stop shop for visual resources, this model is creating stronger local climate reporting and more photojournalism in local outlets,.
