Jim Lo Scalzo


Even after 16 years shooting for US News & World Report, Jim Lo Scalzo is not his own idea of a photographer. He's had assignments in more than 60 countries, won an award or two, and written a memoir. And yet he still hates tech talk, has never worn a Leica around his neck like jewelry, and doesn't own a flash.

He does carry a microphone and notebook, however. And often a video camera. He loves to write and report his own stories; all his multimedia pieces were reported, shot, and edited by him alone.

As for the rest, he loves to teach, to cook, to travel. He has a master's degree in photojournalism from the University of Missouri, Columbia, and lives in Washington, DC, with his wife and two children.

Evidence of My Existence by Jim Lo Scalzo

What makes for a life of relevance? Photojournalist Jim Lo Scalzo raises this question in a memoir of 17 years of manic globe-trotting. What he discovers about the meaning of life surprises even him.
