Stephanie Sinclair

Stephanie Sinclair, 34, graduated from the University of Florida, with a BS in Journalism and a minor in Fine Art Photography. The Chicago Tribune hired her out of college where she worked for five years. After covering the war in Iraq, Stephanie quit her job and moved to Iraq and then Beirut, Lebanon to work out of the region. Her regular clients include The New York Times Magazine, Time, Newsweek, US News & World Report, Stern, German Geo and Marie Claire among others.

I think Sinclair’s work does a good job at demonstrating the power of photography within journalism.  Photos are not only supposed to support the text of a story, but go beyond it to tell another side that cannot be expressed through words.
