Lynsey Addario: Women—mostly widows—train for police force jobs at a firing range near Kabul.
“Women of Vision” features nearly 100 photographs from 11 award-winning National Geographic photojournalists. The photos include moving depictions of far-flung cultures, compelling illustrations of conceptual topics such as memory and teenage brain chemistry, and arresting images of social issues like child marriage and 21st-century slavery.

In addition to the photographs, visitors will have an opportunity to learn how National Geographic magazine picture editors work closely with the photographers to select images and tell a story. Video vignettes will present first-person accounts that reveal the photographers’ individual styles, passions, and approaches to their craft.

PNC Financial Services is the Presenting National Tour Sponsor.

Additional local support provided by Dickens Mitchener Residential Real Estate, the Mint Museum Auxiliary, Novant Health, UTC Aerospace Systems, and Moore & Van Allen. Exhibition media partners are The Charlotte Observer and WFAE 90.7fm

Women of Vision was curated by National Geographic Senior Photo Editor Elizabeth Krist and includes the photos of Maggie Steber, Lynsey Addario, Kitra Cahana, Jodi Cobb, Diane Cook, Carolyn Drake, Lynn Johnson, Beverly Joubert, Erika Larsen, Stephanie Sinclair and Amy Toensing.
