Florence Goupil

Florence Goupil (1990, Lima, Peru) is a French and Peruvian photographer based in Peru. Goupil is currently a National Geographic Explorer.

Raised in an Andean family, sheltered by the stories of their traditions, but formed in the French school, Goupil grew up between two cultures; instilling in her a deep commitment to issues such as identity, human rights, environment, and the Indigenous nation’s living memory.

Her work has been exhibited at the International Center of Photography and the Bronx Documentary Center, and published in National Geographic, BBC, Polka Magazine, El País, BJP, and other international media. She is a contributor for Le Monde and OjoPúblico. In 2020, she was nominated for the Joop Swart Masterclass of World Press Photo and was awarded a grant by National Geographic Society. She is currently based in the Peruvian Amazon, doing a multimedia project about the COVID-19 pandemic in an Indigenous community, after obtaining the National Geographic Society Emergency Fund for Journalists. For this project, she was recently awarded with the 2020 Getty Images Reportage Grant and the Pulitzer Center Rainforest Journalism Fund Grant. In 2021, she received the POY Latam Honorable Mention for Photographer of the Year and was nominated for the Leica Oskar Barnack Award.
