Eleven female photographers who contributed powerful stories to National Geographic magazine in the 21st century are honored in the new book Women of Vision: National Geographic Photographers on Assignment. It’s basically the catalog for the exhibition of the same name, which opened at the National Geographic Museum in Washington, D.C., in October 2013 and hangs at the Levine Center for the Arts’ Mint Museum Uptown in Charlotte, North Carolina, through July 20.
The show features the work of 99 photographs culled from various assignments as well as a picture of the photojournalists. The exhibition was curated by National Geographic’s senior photo editor, Elizabeth Cheng Krist, who is in Santa Fe at the end of June to teach The Project Workshop, a special offering for the 25th-anniversary season of the Santa Fe Photographic Workshops. She also offers a free lecture on June 30.
