MAKING CONNECTIONS: PHOTOGRAPHIC STORYTELLERS FROM AROUND THE WORLD

SHAHIDUL ALAM, CHRIS RAINIER, AND THE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC SOCIETY’S ALL ROADS AWARDEES

The National Geographic Society’s All Roads Film Project recognizes and supports indigenous and underrepresented storytellers from around the world who are documenting their changing cultures and communities through photography and film. For the third consecutive year of this popular program, we present talented artists from Israel, Kashmir, Lapland, Mongolia, Nigeria, and the United States who have been selected by the National Geographic Society to present their work and reflect on ways their images and stories make connections that help create a more just and beautiful world. The All Roads photographers will be joined by Chris Rainier of the National Geographic Society and photographer Shahidul Alam, media activist and founder of the Drik photo agency in Bangladesh.
