Every influential figure has a story and this new series, Chronicles, will tell those stories from the point of view of six prominent individuals: sharing their first success, their first failure, and their most profound moments as only they could. From a film producer turned philanthropist, to a talented photojournalist who serves as the senior photo editor at National Geographic, to a NASA astronaut now bringing science to the masses, Chronicles takes a look at those who are having a profound impact on their fields and the personal history that shaped their careers.
For the first time ever, our subjects agreed to share their private archives, offering our readers a chance to examine the photos, videos, sketches, and notes that enrich these stories using Microsoft OneDrive.
Over the next six weeks, Chronicles will reveal stunning creations—like 3D-printed prosthetics for Sudanese amputees—alongside game-changing techniques—like gyrostablized helicopter filmmaking—all told through the lives and experiences that inspired these radical advances.
In each of its six parts, Chronicles answers the question: What made this person?
