Hello, I'm Ariel Aberg-Riger. I'm a visual storyteller who writes about everything from affordable housing to domestic violence for places like The Guardian, Teen Vogue, and CityLab. My first book America Redux: Visual Stories From Our Dynamic History will be out on May 2, 2023.
What is visual storytelling?
Visual non-fiction, drawn journalism, illustrated stories, art—no matter what you call it, visual storytelling is telling stories using more than just words. More free-form than comics, and more integrated than photos or illustrations placed within a piece, it allows readers to float and wander through a narrative.
