Natacha Merritt (1977) is an American photographer, artist and biologist.
Her book Digital Diaries (2000) was the first digital selfie photography book that was ever published. Merritt has been called a ‘cheap self-promotor’, a 'ground-breaker’ and the contemporary equivalent of Anaïs Nin. She catalogued her sexual history on the internet with explicit photos and got the attention of photographer Eric Kroll, which lead to the release of her photos as ‘Digital Diaries’.
In Merritt's book 'Sexual Selection', she compares and contrasts the sexual complexity of plants and insects with that of her own sexuality. She returned to college to study evolutionary biology and remarked: ‘That step is logical if you have a passion for sex. All ways lead to evolutionary biology, the formation of species and genetics’.
Her ‘kinky’ nude photography reminds of that of Richard Kern, Ed Fox and Terry Richardson. Her close-up/macro photography of plants and insects reminds of that of Araki.
