Margaret Cheatham Williams is a documentarian at The New York Times.
She is particularly driven to stories that examine the intersection of health, family and personal identity. Through deep character exploration, she aims to tackle intimate issues including postpartum depression, fertility, and sexuality.
In 2017 she piloted an animated series about evolving state of Motherhood, and in 2018 she will be traveling to Pyeongchang, South Korea to cover the Winter Olympics.
Her work has been recognized by the Hearst foundation, Pictures of the Year international, SXSW, and the National Photographers Association.
Before joining the video department at The New York Times in 2012, Williams worked at The LA Times, Washington Post and Mediastorm.
Her perspective is shaped by her southern upbringing and her education at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She chooses restaurants based on the consistency of their balsamic dressing.
