Evan Grothjan is an artist & filmmaker.

He has filmed projects for The New York Times on five continents, from the skies of Rio de Janeiro to the ice of Antarctica. As part of a team of Times journalists, he was recognized as a 2015 Pulitzer Prize finalist for work surrounding the Paris Terror Attacks.
