Fr. Don Doll, S.J.
Photographic Society of America Awards Highest Honor to Jesuit Father Don Doll

October 29, 2014 — The Photographic Society of America, a worldwide organization with 6,000 members, presented Jesuit Father Don Doll with their highest photojournalism award at a banquet held in Albuquerque, New Mexico, on Oct. 3. Earlier in the day, Fr. Doll was the keynote speaker with his presentation, "A Call to Vision: A Jesuit’s Perspective on the World," his latest book celebrating 50 years of his photography.

Fr. Doll, whose work has been featured in National Geographic magazine, has traveled the globe “to tell the stories of people who have no voice.” His ministry began on the plains of South Dakota in the early 1960s while working with the Lakota people on the Rosebud Reservation. He had joined the Jesuit order after graduating from high school in 1955.

Since 1969, Fr. Doll has worked at Creighton University in Omaha, where he is a professor of journalism. For the last 20 years, he has documented the work of the Jesuit Refugee Service in some 50 countries including India, Sri Lanka, Uganda, Sudan and Rwanda.
