Reza, who goes by a single name, is a prodigious photojournalist, committed humanitarian and National Geographic fellow who has been highly decorated for his achievements in the fields of journalism and humanitarian work. He has traveled the globe with a camera, capturing the Iranian Revolution, nomad horsemen of Eastern Turkestan, refugee camps of Rwanda and more. His iconic and arresting images have graced many National Geographic covers. But there is more to the man than simply photos: He founded Aina, an international nonprofit dedicated to the education and empowerment of women and children through media and communication; consulted with the UN in Afghanistan to distribute food to war-torn parts of the country; and won the Hope Prize for his contribution to a joint project with UNICEF, “Lost Children Project,” in Rwanda. He is the author of 16 books, and his photographs have been exhibited in cities around the world.
