Media Memo: Media Opportunity with Jodi Cobb

TO: News/Assignment Editors

FROM: Judy Berthiaume, director, UW-Eau Claire News Bureau

DATE: March 11, 2005

SUBJECT: Media Opportunity with Jodi CObb

National Geographic Society photographer Jodi Cobb will be available to talk with the media from 1:30-2 p.m. Monday, March 14, in the Clearwater Room of Davies Center. Reporters and photographers are welcome.

Cobb will be the Forum speaker Monday evening. Her presentation, "Hidden Worlds," will begin at 7:30 p.m. Monday in Schofield Auditorium in Schofield Hall on UW-Eau Claire's lower campus.

As a staff photographer for the National Geographic Society, Cobb has worked in more than 50 countries, primarily in the Middle East and Asia. She was one of the first photographers to cross into China when it reopened to the West, traveling 7,000 miles in two months for the book, "Journey into China." Her travels also have taken her into Israel and the West Bank and into Saudi Arabia to document the hidden lives of women in that culture. Her book, "Geisha: The Life, the Voices, the Art," explores the hidden world of women in Japan.

Cobb has been a major contributor to six National Geographic books, and her contributions to National Geographic magazine include 24 articles, most recently "21st Century Slaves," "The Enigma of Beauty" and "London." She was featured in "Women Photographers at National Geographic" (2000) and its accompanying exhibitions worldwide. Her photographs have been exhibited at the International Center of Photography in New York; the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., and other major galleries in the United States and abroad.
