Rhinos, Rickshaws, and Revolutions with photojournalist Ami Vitale

Date

Feb 20, 2018
07:30 PM until 10:00 PM

Description

Ami Vitale has lived in war zones, contracted malaria and donned a panda suit – all in keeping with her philosophy of “living the story.” Witness the world’s surreal beauty through Vitale’s celebrated work. Early in her career, her focus was on conflict, such as the war in Kosovo, and the border dispute between India and Pakistan. Her first National Geographic story documented the last rickshaws in Kolkata, India. More recently, she has turned her lens to wildlife stories, including efforts to reintroduce white rhinos and pandas to the wild. Her coverage of Kenya’s northern white rhinos, and the indigenous communities working to protect them, earned her World Press Photo recognition in 2015. Vitale’s career has taught her that stories about nature and wildlife are also stories about people — and that, at the same time, “you can’t talk about humanity without talking about nature.” She’ll share her personal odyssey, told through the images and adventures that have transformed into a celebrated global photojournalist.
