Orlando Museum of Art will host a traveling exhibit on January 23, 2016 called “Women of Vision: National Geographic Photographers on Assignment.” The show will feature the work of 11 award-winning female photojournalists and will be in Orlando until April 25, 2016.

The show includes nearly 100 photographs, “including moving depictions of far-flung cultures, compelling illustrations of conceptual topics such as memory and teenage brain chemistry, and arresting images of social issues like child marriage and 21st-century slavery.”

In addition to the photographs, visitors will have an opportunity to learn how National Geographic magazine picture editors work closely with the photographers to select images and tell a story. Video vignettes will present first-person accounts that reveal the photographers’ individual styles, passions and approaches to their craft.

“Women of Vision” was curated by National Geographic Senior Photo Editor Elizabeth Krist.

The eleven photographers include:

  • Jodi Cobb, the first woman to be named White House Photographer of the Year.
  • Lynsey Addario, Pulitzer Prize winner and MacArthur Fellow.
  • Kitra Cahana, first prize winner from World Press Photo, a TED Fellowship and the ICP Infinity Award.
  • Diane Cook, a leading landscape photographer
  • Carolyn Drake is the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship, a Fulbright Fellowship, the Lange Taylor Documentary Prize, a World Press Photo award, and was a finalist for the Santa Fe Prize.
  • Lynn Johnson A Knight Fellow and recipient of the Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award for Coverage of the Disadvantaged.
  • Beverly Joubert is a National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence, filmmaker, photographer and co-founder of the Big Cat Initiative.
  • Erika Larsen studies cultures with strong ties to nature.
  • Stephanie Sinclair’s decade-long project on child marriage has earned global recognition, including three World Press Photo awards.
  • Maggie Steber has worked in over 62 countries and her images have earned several prestigious honors, including the Leica Medal of Excellence and World Press Photo awards.
  • Amy Toensing began her prolific career covering the White House and Congress for the New York Times.
