Join veteran National Geographic photographer Jodi Cobb on a whirlwind retrospective of her distinguished career, spanning the social and cultural milestones of four decades of global history.

As a photojournalism student in the 60s, Cobb avidly recorded the counter-culture she was immersed in, starting with some of rock & roll’s biggest names—Bruce Springsteen and Grace Slick among them—at pivotal points in their careers. Her first documentary project covering a commune in the Ozark hills garnered numerous awards, establishing her as a new young star of the photographic world. In the mid-70s, Cobb left newspapers to join National Geographic magazine—its first female photographer in what was then very much a boys’ club. She would go on to shoot some of the most pivotal stories in the magazine’s history, including the shocking and poignant “21st Century Slavery,” exposing a wide range of human trafficking, child and slave labor, and the sex trade.

Known for breaking through barriers and going undercover to reveal hidden societies, Cobb has brought to light some of the first images ever published from these realms—fascinating glimpses into Japan’s secret Geisha culture and the cloistered lives of Saudi Arabian women.

She has also covered lighter topics, capturing the singular experience of being a twin and exploring what is considered “beautiful” around the world.

Featured as one of National Geographic’s Women of Vision in a Fall 2013 book and exhibition, Jodi Cobb takes audiences on a moving and humorous journey. Travel with her as she chronicles her public—and private—path from young photojournalist to world-renowned photographer.
