Jonathan D. Woods

Senior Editor, Photo & Interactive,
Jonathan Woods is the photo and interactive senior editor for TIME. In his first two years, Woods has led two groundbreaking exclusives that have been milestones for TIME’s coverage. Through a collaboration with Google, Woods published an interactive 30-year time-lapse video of the earth from space. Exploring global effects of urbanization, climate change and natural resources, the 11-month project was viewed by more than 3 million people. This project created the largest video in the world to date. Most recently, Woods photographed the only 360-degree panorama from the top of 1 World Trade Center, the tallest building in the western hemisphere. His idea for the image was a springboard for a TIME cover story, feature film and microsite around the redevelopment of lower Manhattan following the devastating terrorist attacks of 9/11. When he’s not climbing skyscrapers, Woods leads a team of six editors who distill 25,000 photos a day into the daily visual report you see on Prior to joining TIME, Woods spent three years with as a multimedia producer and six as a photojournalist for newspapers ranging from the Cedar Rapids (Iowa)Gazette to Denver’s Rocky Mountain News.
