Florence Goupil, a French and Peruvian photographer, is currently an Explorer at National Geographic Explorer. She began her studies in history of art at Denis Diderot University in Paris and later went on to study at L'École Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Rennes, where she graduated in multimedia and editorial design.
Raised in an Andean family, sheltered by the stories of their traditions, but educated in the French school, Goupil grew up between two cultures. Hence her deep commitment to issues such as human rights, territory, and spirituality in Peru and Latin America.
Her work has been exhibited at the ICP (New York) and published in National Geographic, Polka Magazine (France), PhMuseum (Italy), and other international media. In 2020 she was nominated for the Joop Swart Masterclass of World Press Photo and was awarded a grant by National Geographic Society to carry out a photographic and audio project on native corn and its link to rural farmers in Mexico and Peru. She is currently based in Peru reporting about COVID-19 in an Indigenous community, after obtaining the National Geographic Society COVID-19 Emergency Fund for Journalists. For this project, she was recently awarded the 2020 Getty Images Reportage Grant.
