Election Issues Through the Lens of National Geographic Photographers
Immigration, the environment and U.S foreign policy: We asked our photographers to reflect on some of the issues that divided the country this election season.
Many of the key issues of the recent election cycle are topics that National Geographic has been covering for years: the environment, climate change, immigration, race, poverty, women’s rights.
During the months our photographers are on assignment for these stories, they become deeply immersed and invested in the lives and places they photograph. Stephanie Sinclair’s name is synonymous with her work on empowering women and girls; Ruddy Roye’s with re-humanizing images of black Americans.
We asked some National Geographic photographers to reflect on stories they recently covered for the magazine that also were topics that divided the country and helped shape the outcome of the 2016 U.S. presidential election. These are their personal beliefs and opinions; they do not represent the views
