Exploring landscapes from the bayous of Louisiana to the backlands of Brazil, Tyrone Turner’s work brings him to surprising, intimate, poetic, and sometimes dangerous places. For Turner, photography is about engagement with the world, with people and places he wouldn’t know otherwise, whether that means hanging out with sugarcane cutters in Brazil, exploring Maya murals in Guatemala, or stepping along with a second line parade in his native New Orleans.
In addition to contributing to National Geographic magazine since 2004, Turner has photographed for international magazines, nonprofit foundations, corporations, and major advertising campaigns. He has received awards and fellowships for his work from POY, BOP, the Soros Foundation, and the Institute of Current World Affairs.
