The Story

Annie Griffiths was one of the first women photographers to work for National Geographic. She has covered women’s issues on six continents, and her work has also been featured in LIFE, Geo, Smithsonian, Time, Stern, and many other publications. Her books include A Camera, Two Kids and a Camel and Last Stand: America’s Virgin Lands, done in partnership with acclaimed author Barbara Kingsolver. Proceeds from the book have raised more than a quarter million dollars for grassroots land conservation. Annie is deeply committed to photographing innovative aid programs around the world. For more than two decades, she has dedicated a portion of each year to documenting the important work of aid organizations. Annie has received awards from the National Press Photographers Association, the Associated Press, the National Organization of Women, and the White House News Photographers Association.
