Raphaela Rosella is an Australian documentary visual-storyteller. Currently based in Brisbane, she is co-editor of The Australian PhotoJournalist, a non-profit publication dedicated to celebrating the human condition and casting a critical eye on journalism and mass media practices.

Working closely across communities facing recurring hardship, Raphaela uses visual storytelling to question our readiness to stigmatize and to stereotype. Known for her work documenting the lives of several young mothers, Raphaela plans to continue investigating relationships between social class, stigma and gender among young Australian women and men experiencing social disadvantage.

In 2012 she joined the Australian photography collective Oculi and is now represented throughout Europe by Agence Vu.
