For 125 years, National Geographic has documented the world and all that is in it with stunning photography and images that capture the soul of a story. Some of the most powerful and impactful stories of the past decade have been produced by a new generation of female photojournalists. They are as different as the subjects they cover but all share the same passion and commitment to storytelling.

Women of Vision features the work of eleven photographers. From the elegant landscapes of the Mongolian steppes and American West to war torn battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan; from the last great wildernesses of Africa to the lives of people from the Arctic to the Jersey Shore, their stories explore modern realities and what it means to be human in the 21st Century.

With more than 100 images and multimedia, this exhibition profiles the lives and work of these important photojournalists. Visitors experience the personalities and get behind the lens for the individual stories that make these projects so memorable.

The national tour of the exhibition is presented by PNC Financial Services Group, Inc.
