Lecture by Michael ‘Nick’ Nichols
Thursday, October 17, 2013, 7:00-8:30 pm
Tickets: $10

“Elephants are among the Earth’s most sentient beings. They remember, they experience grief and joy, fear and love. Indeed, as our knowledge of these extraordinary creatures increases, the more they transcend all preconceptions of animal behavior.

Michael “Nick” Nichols, longtime photographer for National Geographic as well as the magazine’s editor-at-large for photography, has been working with African elephants for more than twenty years. In Earth to Sky he tells their story through poignant images that bring us directly into their habitats—lush forests and open savannas, or stark landscapes ravaged by human intervention—to observe the animals’ daily engagements and activities.”

This presentation is part of a tour starting on October 3rd in Charlottesville, VA in support of Nichols’ new book Earth to Sky: Among Africa’s Elephants, A Species in Crisis (Aperture, September, 2013).  To see when and where he will be throughout the month of October visit: www.michaelnicknichols.com/tour-dates-2013.
