Kenneth Jarecke is a world-renowned photojournalist based in Joliet, Montana. His work has taken him to over 80 countries and nine Olympic games. He is the creator and editor-in-chief of The Curious Society, a nonprofit created for showcasing the work of photojournalists and documentary photography, based out of Montana.

Carol Guzy is a former staff photographer for The Washington Post who has received the Pulitzer Prize four times for her work. Her career spans more than three decades and has taken her across the globe, documenting the human spirit across humanitarian crisis, war, famine and natural disasters, political upheavals, and most recently, a dive into nature photography.

Originally from Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, Carol studied photography at the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale and interned at the Miami Herald, where she was hired on as a staff photographer after graduation. After eight years there, she became a staff photographer for The Washington Post. After nearly three decades of world travel as a photojournalist, Carol has recently turned her lens to nature photography while sheltering in place during the pandemic.

Kenneth discovered a love of photography in high school and made friends with photojournalists at the Omaha World Herald who would become his mentors. He would continue to work for major publications including Life Magazine, National Geographic, TIME, and Sports Illustrated. He lives outside of Joliet, where he launched The Curious Society in January 2021.
