Amazing cell phone cameras and a desire to capture artful moments in life have turned many of us into picture-taking fiends.

While wonderful, it’s nothing like the all-consuming lenses of women artists featured this month in our WS series – A Lens on the World.

Women like Dorothea Lange and Prisscila Baxter have tackled some of the most challenging issues in history and around the world with their photographic art. This week’s incredible changemaker is no different. Cristina Mittermeier’s work is beautifully arresting, provocative and mind-altering.
