Nanna Navntoft (born 1988) is a Danish documentary photographer based in Copenhagen, Denmark. 

After graduating with a bachelor in geography, she started studying photojournalism at the Danish School of Media and Journalism (DMJX). As part of her education she worked at the Danish daily, Dagbladet Politiken for 18 months. Then she studied abroad at The Royal Academy of Art in The Hague (KABK). In January 2020 she graduated from DMJX. Her work deals with social topics and addiction in different ways. Primarily she is concerned with neglected stories about how society treats the less fortunate, which she mainly explores through intimate portraiture.

Besides working with personal projects, I am available for commissioned portraits and documentary work in Denmark and internationally.
