Photography's Role In Conservation

Post by edfrank » Tue May 28, 2013 3:13 pm

It’s the photographs that act as ambassadors for conservation projects around the world. They speak louder than any number of words in a report sitting unread on a desk. That’s why conservation photography is so important. (James Borell) This is a contemporary account of the emerging genre of conservation photography is explored through the voices and imagery of some of the best environmental communicators working today.

Witness: Defining Conservation Photography Feature
from iLCP PLUS 2 years ago / Creative Commons License: by nc nd NOT YET RATED

Directed and produced by Neil Ever Osborne with editing and production by Chad A. Stevens and support from the iLCP
A contemporary account of the emerging genre of conservation photography is explored through the voices and imagery of some of the best environmental communicators working today. Notable anthropologist Jane Goodall, National Geographic Editor-at-Large and iLCP Fellow Michael Nichols, and International League of Conservation Photographers (iLCP) president Cristina Mittermeier, among many others, share candid thoughts on the power of photography and its value as an effective conservation tool. The narrative is accompanied by stunning photographic contributions from over 40 iLCP conservation photographers to illustrate the convergence between the conservation and photography realms. Inspired by “Conservation Photography”, a thesis by Carlton Ward, Jr.
"I love science and it pains me to think that so many are terrified of the subject or feel that choosing science means you cannot also choose compassion, or the arts, or be awe by nature. Science is not meant to cure us of mystery, but to reinvent and revigorate it." by Robert M. Sapolsky
