Natacha Merritt (1977) is an American photographer, artist and biologist. Her 2000 book Digital Diaries was published by Taschen and was the first digital photography book ever published. Merritt has been called a cheap self-promoter, a ground-breaker, and the contemporary counterpart of Anaïs Nin. She catalogued her sexual history on the internet through explicit photographs and drew the attention of photographer Eric Kroll, leading to the release of her photos as Digital Diaries.

In Merritt’s 2012 book Sexual Selection, she compares and contrasts the sexual intricacies of plants and insects with her own sexuality. She returned to higher education to study evolutionary biology, noting: “The leap makes sense when you are passionate about sex. All roads lead to evolutionary biology, speciation and genetics.”

Her kinky nude photography is reminiscent to that of Richard Kern, Ed Fox and Terry Richardson. Her close-up / macro photography of plants and insects to that of Nobuyoshi Araki.
