Get an in-person report from one of the world’s leading wildlife photojournalists, Michael “Nick” Nichols, on the struggle to preserve Africa’s wild animals. Nichols, National Geographic’s Editor-at-Large for photography, has been working with African elephants for more than 20 years. This fall, Aperture will publish his new book Earth to Sky: Among Africa’s Elephants, A Species in Crisis, a stunning, intimate visual narrative in which Nichols advocates for the protection of the species, whose survival is under dire threat from humankind.
In addition, Nichols will share from his recent coverage, “The Short Happy Life of the Serengeti Lion,” published in the August 2013 issue of National Geographic magazine. Over the course of two years, Nick and his team followed a group of lions in Tanzania, using cutting-edge technologiesfrom a remote-controlled camera car to a micro-copterto capture new views of these beloved animals. Experience these truly iconic animals as never before with video, audio, anecdotes, and photographs from the field.
Copies of Earth to Sky will be available for sale and signing after the event, with proceeds benefiting National Geographic Mission Programs.
