Photographer Annie Griffiths presents ‘A Camera, Two Kids, and a Camel’
“I have learned that even without a shared language, it’s easy to let people know that their children are beautiful, their homes are lovely…and that their stories are worth sharing with the world” – Annie Griffiths
Experience the life of a photographer on assignment for National Geographic magazine, and meet a true pioneer who figured out her own way to balance work and family. One of National Geographic’s first female staff photographers, Annie Griffiths has worked on every continent except Antarctica, while also raising two children. Perhaps the only professional photographer ever to pack her camera gear in Pampers, she found a way to stay close to her kids without putting the brakes on her career—even if it meant bringing the two along with her on assignment in places as distant as the ruins of Petra in Jordan or the Galápagos Islands.
Books will be for sale courtesy of Rainy Day Books. Annie Griffiths will be available for signatures.
