Florence Goupil (1990 Lima, Peru) is a French and Peruvian photographer based in Cusco, Peru. She studied at L'École Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Rennes and later at University of Rennes 2, where she graduated in Multimedia and Editorial Design. Florence is currently an Explorer at National Geographic Explorer. 

Raised in an Andean family, nurtured by the stories of its traditions, yet having French heritage, Florence grew up in the midst of two cultures. This is the origin of her approach to the land where she grew up and of her deep commitment to issues such as human rights, identity, the environment and the living memory of the indigenous people of Peru and Latin America.

Her work has been exhibited at the ICP and the Bronx Documentary Center, published in National Geographic, BBC, Polka Magazine, El País, BJP and other international media. She is a contributor for Le Monde and Ojo-Publico. In 2020 she has been nominated for the Joop Swart Masterclass of Worldpress photo and was awarded a grant by National Geographic Society. She is currently based in the Peruvian Amazon doing a multimedia project about the COVID-19 situation in an indigenous community, after obtaining the National Geographic Society Emergency Fund for Journalists. For this project, she was recently awarded with the 2020 Getty Images Reportage Grant and the Pulitzer Center Rainforest Journalism Fund Grant. In 2021, she received an Honorable Mention from POY Latam as Ibero-American Photographer of the Year and obtained the Nouvelles Écritures award from La Gacilly festival, for which her project The Healing Plants is being exhibited in France.
