Jodi Cobb has spent three decades as a staff photographer with National Geographic magazine and has worked in more than 60 countries. She was the first photographer to document the hidden lives of the women of Saudi Arabia but she is perhaps best known for her book Geisha: The Life, the Voices, the Art, which was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize and won the American Society of Media Photographers Outstanding Achievement Award.
Cobb has been honored by the National Press Photographers Association’s Pictures of the Year International competition and the World Press Photo award. She was also the first woman to be named the White House News Photographer’s Association “Photographer of the Year.”
