Don Doll, a Jesuit priest, is a well-known photographer whose work has been featured in National Geographic and in many of the The Day in the Life books. As a young Jesuit, his first experience in photography was at South Dakota's Rosebud Reservation where he worked with the Lakota people. He has published two collections of his Lakota photos: Crying for a Vision and Vision Quest: Men, Women and Sacred Sites of the Sioux Nation. The Vision Quest exhibit has toured 17 cities.

Active in the National Press Photographers Association, and a frequent speaker at photojournalism workshops, Doll works at Creighton University, in Omaha, Nebraska, where he is a Professor of Fine Arts (holding the Charles and Mary Heider Jesuit Chair).

His many awards include the Kodak Crystal Eagle Award for Impact in Photojournalism (National Press Club in Washington, DC, 1997), which he received for his many years of work with Native Americans.
