Stephanie Sinclair

Visual Journalist, Stephanie Sinclair is known for gaining unique access to the most sensitive gender and human rights issues around the world. Although she has covered the dramatic events of war, many of Sinclair’s most arresting works confront the everyday brutality faced by young girls around the world. Her studies of domestic life in developing countries and the United States bring into sharp relief the physical and emotional tolls that entrenched social conventions can take on those most vulnerable to abuse. Sinclair’s images mark an exchange of trust and compassion. But by consenting to be photographed at their most vulnerable, the people depicted in these images also demonstrate a rare bravery. The resulting images have been published in hundreds our outlets worldwide including National Geographic and The New York Times Magazine. Sinclair is the recipient of numerous other awards including the CARE International Award for Humanitarian Reportage, the Overseas Press Club’s Olivier Rebbot Award, three World Press Photo awards and a Pulitzer Prize. In 2010, Stephanie’s photographs of self-immolation in Afghanistan were exhibited as part of the Whitney Biennial in New York.
