As the 2009 winner of the National Geographic photography grant, Alessandra Sanguinetti will receive $50,000 to fund a project on food production. The two previous winners were Jonas Bendiksen (2008) and Eugene Richards (2007).

“Alessandra has an original way of seeing that brings freshness to a subject which is of great importance, but can be difficult to convey past stereotypes,” said Susan Smith, National Geographic Magazine’s deputy director of photography, in a statement announcing the grant. “We loved her proposal and are excited to support a photographer we haven't worked with before."
