Janet Jarman is a freelance photographer and a multimedia storyteller currently based in Mexico. She has worked extensively in Latin America and Asia, and produces a number of documentary projects which explore immigration issues, globalization and sustainable development.

Janet's photographs and essays appeared in The New York Times, Geo, The Smithsonian Magazine, Times Asia, Fortune National Geographic Traveler and other publications, and her work received awards in POYi, PDN's Photography Annual and Best of Journalism.

I chose an image from Janet's Mexico Traditions' gallery for this post, but I also recommend you visit her multimedia projects, especially The Chichimeca Story...not only a very well produced multimedia story, but a worthwhile social project in northern Mexico.
