Keith Dannemiller graduated from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee with a B.A. in Organic Chemistry.  In 1976, after four years in San Francisco, he moved to Austin, Texas where he worked for The Texas Observer, Third Coast and Texas Monthly magazines. In 1987 he decided to live and work in México as a photojournalist affiliated first with Black Star and later with Saba Press Photos.

Today, independently, he pursues various visual projects that involve social problems in current day Mexico such as immigration, the informal economy and the intersection of religious and social movements. His book, Callegrafía, is a selection of black and white images from the Historic Center district of Mexico City. He is currently working on a project in Wilson, NC entitled Homesweet, Homeland, which will open there in March 2022.
