Lynn Johnson

Her work has been published in more than 25 stories for National Geographic magazine, as well as in publications such as Life magazine and Sports Illustrated. Lynn was recently selected by her peers as the winner of the 2013 National Geographic Photographer’s Photographer award, a prestigious annual honor given to the photographer who has most inspired fellow photographers to "expand the possibilities of the medium." She is also one of 11 featured photographers in the National Geographic book and traveling exhibition, Women of Vision: National Geographic Photographers on Assignment, which profiles the lives and work of important photojournalists and goes behind the lens of their individual assignments.
