Occupy photographs have been published by ABC News, CBS News, the New York Times, the

Wall Street Journal, NPR, Salon, the Guardian and Time magazine. One of her photos from

the Occupy Brooklyn Bridge action was chosen by TimeOut NY as one of the 50 iconic photos

of New York City. American Photography chose another Occupy photo as part of their “Best

of 2011” photographs. Recently, the Newswomen’s Club of New York selected Stephanie Keith

as “Reporter of the Year” for her Occupy Wall Street photography. She will also be exhibiting

her Occupy photographs at the International Center of Photography as part of an alumni show

liability of transnational corporations and other non-state actors for human rights abuses
