Lily Estella Thompson

As a documentary visual journalist, I focus on sharing the intimate details and stories of humanity in order to showcase the shared human experience here on earth, and beyond. I hope to help connect cultures, ages, experiences and perspectives through the art of storytelling and create an historic record of the people, places, things, ideas and events which define our societies and cultures. 

I grew up in Paoli, Ind., a small, rural town in southern Indiana. I was raised listening to stories about the people around me and falling in love with the light and color and life around me. I am currently based in Bowling Green, Ky. attending Western Kentucky University studying photojournalism, political science and journalism. 

There are two things which define who I am: truthful and compassionate. Stemming from those two traits come everything else. Compassion leads to my passion for people, kindness, empathy, and positivity. Truthfulness leads to my need to do things correctly and accurately, an acute sense of ethics and a focus for objectivity. 

Photojournalism isn’t just something I do, it is a part of who I am.
