Essick will share with you his own evocative photographs from the new National Geographic book The Ansel Adams Wilderness, and you’ll enjoy images of other powerful natural landscapes he has documented. A contributor to National Geographic for 25 years, Peter Essick was recently named one of the world’s 40 most influential nature photographers by Outdoor Photography. Introduction by Jamie Williams, President of The Wilderness Society.
