Proof: Lynn Johnson on the Heroic Nature of Humanity

Photojournalist and National Geographic photographer Lynn Johnson shares her views on her work and what motivates her.

She is the recipient of awards including four World Press Photography Awards, seven Golden Quills for Photojournalism, the Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award and Picture of the Year Award from the National Press Photographer Association.

For me her work really stands out because of the way she connects the viewer, in a direct and visceral way with the people that she photographs. Her images are elegant and beautiful but more importantly they give a voice to the people she photographs, helping them to tell their story.

Till soon,
