Allison Joyce is a Boston born photojournalist based in Dhaka, Bangladesh. At the age of 19 she left university at Pratt Institute and moved to Iowa to cover the 2008 Presidential Race where she worked as a campaign photographer for Hillary Clinton. The experience inspired her travels around the world covering social issues like climate change, health, and human trafficking in countries such as Bangladesh, Haiti, India, and the Dominican Republic. After freelancing in New York City for almost six years she relocated to Bangladesh in 2013.
Her work has appeared in publications such as the New York Times, National Geographic, Mother Jones, Virginia Quarterly Review, TIME, Paris Match, Newsweek, and been honored by POYI (Pictures of the Year International) and the NYPPA (New York Press Photograhers Association).
