In The Hands of Women

The Story

Lynn Johnson is known for her intense, sensitive work. In 30 years as a photojournalist, she has photographed for virtually every major magazine and traveled throughout the world. She now divides her time between magazine assignments and work for various foundations. Lynn says: “As photographers, we witness — unfiltered — the lives of those willing to share their stories, hoping to impact a world they may never visit and strangers who can only imagine their struggles. If there is one constant lesson, it is that we are all connected.” Lynn’s many awards include seven Golden Quills for Photojournalism, four World Press Photography awards, and a prestigious POY — Picture of the Year award.
