About the Photojournalist
Behind the lens: recording history; influencing public opinion; an eyewitness to life and death.
John Lehmann is one of the top photojournalists in North America. He was, most recently, named Canadian photojournalist of the year in 2012 and 2013.
Lehmann brings an array of talents to his work: the insatiable curiosity that marks all the best journalists; an artistry that sets his images apart from the billions of other pictures; a quiet intimacy and flair for inventiveness, which is what brings his work to life.
Most of all, he is not simply a photographer, he is a visual journalist. And the principal that underpins everything is accuracy and honesty, both to the people he reports on and the readers to whom he reports.
