About Larry Buchanan

Larry Buchanan has spent a decade at The New York Times making maps, graphics and charts that cover stories for nearly every desk, including breaking news, the presidency of Donald J. Trump, gun violence in America and the last four Olympic Games. Most recently, he has turned his lens to New York City, publishing deeply reported multimedia stories that explore topics like: the conversion of office towers to residential towers, waste infrastructure in the age of Eric Adams, and the very notion of a “neighborhood” as a unit of human organization and identity. His work lives at the intersection of art and journalism and uses both together to better explain the world. Before working for The Times, he reported and made interactive graphics for The New Yorker. He has taught visual journalism at universities for nearly a decade, most recently in the graduate program at Columbia University. He has won two Emmy Awards for the New York Times for stories about Bob Ross and Tucker Carlson, respectively.
