Photographer and filmmaker Carolyn Jones

If you're going to spend your life asking people to share their stories, and to tell you their innermost thoughts when you've got a camera and a light and a microphone in their face, then I have to be able to do that too. 

Carolyn Jones has spent the past eight years traveling the globe as artistic director and co-founder of the 100 People Project, creating portraits of 100 people who statistically represent the global population.

She has created short documentary videos on such topics as a Navajo teenager who developed solar ovens, frontline health workers in India, and a high school student in Malaysia who developed an organic battery out of a local plant.

Jones' books of photographs include The American Nurse, Microsoft: Heroes Happen Here, Every Girl Tells a Story: A Celebration of Girls Speaking their Minds, The Family of Women: Voices Across the Generations, and Living Proof: Courage in the Face of AIDS.
