One of the first women photographers to work for National Geographic, Annie Griffiths has photographed in nearly 150 countries during her illustrious career. She has worked on dozens of magazine and book projects for National Geographic. Griffiths’ work has also appeared in LIFE, Geo, Smithsonian, Fortune, and Stern, among other publications.
In addition to her magazine work, Griffiths is deeply engaged in photography for aid organisations around the world. She is the Founder of Ripple Effect Images, a collective of photographers documenting programs that empower women and girls in the developing world. Ripple has produced 36 films and built a photo library of over 50,000 images since 2010. Using these assets, Ripple’s beneficiaries have raised millions of dollars, expanded their programmes to multiple countries and proved that women and girls are the best investment the world can make in our common future.
Annie is a member of the International League of Conservation Photographers and has received awards from the National Press Photographers Association, Heifer International, National Organisation for Women, University of Minnesota, and the White House News Photographers Association.
