Born in 1947 in New York, Jane Evelyn Atwood is an American photographer who has made France her home since the 1970s. With a deep-rooted commitment to long-term reportage, Atwood immerses herself in the worlds of her subjects, capturing deeply human stories, often focusing on marginalized or overlooked groups.
