The work of three Pulitzer Center grantees, Stephanie Sinclair, Carolyn Drake and Amy Toensing, is featured in “Women of Vision.” This National Geographic Museum exhibit pays tribute to 11 passionate female photographers who have documented powerful stories from across the globe. Pictures taken on almost every continent cover a range of subjects, from child brides in Yemen to aboriginal families in Australia, from Uyghur cultures and practices to polygamy in America. The exhibit, also featuring other women photographers such as Kitra Cahana, Jodi Cobb and Lynsey Addario, is strikingly diverse, with an underlying theme of women’s rights. “I keep working on women’s issues because I feel for them. I can see myself in them and I’ve realized how fortunate I am. The only difference between them and me is I was born somewhere else. I was born into a different situation," says Stephanie Sinclair.
