Join veteran photographer Jodi Cobb on a whirlwind retrospective of a distinguished career that has spanned four decades. One of only four female staff photographers in National Geographic’s history,  she is known for breaking through barriers and lifting a curtain on hidden societies. Cobb has captured fascinating glimpses of worlds such as Japan’s secret Geisha culture and the cloistered lives of Saudi Arabian women. Her landmark story “21st Century Slavery” exposed the tragedy of human trafficking, generating more reader accolades than any other story until then. Travel with this inspiring woman as she chronicles her public—and private—path from young photojournalist to world-renowned photographer.
