William Albert Allard‘s photographs display deep empathy for the lives of ordinary people, connecting us to unexplored places and cultures. His distinguished career has taken him around the world, and to some of America’s most unique communities. The evening celebrates a new National Geographic book—William Albert Allard: Five Decades—which offers a stunning retrospective of his work. In a special guest appearance, acclaimed country folk musician Terri Allard will perform a tribute to her father.

Co-sponsored by Booz Allen Hamilton.
