Presentation: Elephants to Everest: Dispatches from a Visual Journalist
In The Art of Travel, Alain de Botton wrote that artists can "paint a portion of the world and in consequence open the eyes of others to it." That's pretty much been the mantra of National Geographic for 124 years and mine for the past 12. Whether I'm sketching elephants in Zambia, charting all the people who have ever lived, or curating blogs from Mount Everest, I try to distill stories into iconic images you'll remember. In Savannah, I'll share some favorite examples, reveal our process, and show why work made by hand is as relevant now as it was in 1888.
