Joanna Pinneo is most famous for this photo titled “Sub-Saharan Mali”. It was taken on an assignment to Mali to uncover how drought is affecting the Tuareg nomads in sub-Saharan Africa. In shot are a local family whom Pinneo had met on the trip and constitutes a poignant moment, reminding the world about the catastrophic effects of climate change.
