National Geographic photographer Lynn Johnson will give a public lecture on Thursday, February 21 at 7:30 p.m. in the Park Auditorium.
In addition to assignments for National Geographic, Johnson has also work for LIFE, Sports Illustrated and various foundations. She has traveled all over the world and even photographed notables such Tiger Woods and the entire Supreme Court. However, according to her biography, her favorite assignments “are emotionally demanding stories about ordinary people.”
Her visit campus is part of a unique community partnership that includes pairing student photographers with local organizations. The Park Award for Photo Activism Project is in its first year. Participating students are enrolled in a documentary photography class taught by Professor Janice Levy. As their class assignment, students will provide in-depth visual explorations of the contributions these organizations make to their constituencies and our community.
