Over a million pictures a year are made by National Geographic magazine photographers while on assignment around the world. If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to have their work edited down to just a dozen images for their stories, come join a panel of four NGM photographers as they talk about the grueling, painstaking editing process that they all must endure. Step behind the camera with four top photographers whose unpublished work from 2010 is on exhibit with that of eight other photographers at the National Geographic Society headquarters: Lynsey Addario, a MacArthur grantee who has captured images of Afghan women; Jim Richardson, whose evocative landscapes include the Hebrides and other locations; Fritz Hoffmann, who has been photographing China for sixteen years, thirteen as a resident photojournalist in Shanghai, which he covered for the magazine; and Lynn Johnson, whose compelling images tell the story of “water slaves,” individuals around the world, largely women, who must go to great lengths to obtain water. The program will be moderated by Kurt Mutchler, National Geographic magazine’s executive editor for photography, who will also engage the audience in a discussion on the challenges of photographing the world today.
