"An Introduction to Conservation Photography"

Friend of the iLCP, Myfanwy Rowlands (Our World-Underwater Scholarship Society) recently gave a seminar entitled "An Introduction to Conservation Photography" at the Center for Islands and Oceans in Homer, Alaska. Ms. Rowlands presented several case studies on Conservation Photography both past and present, including current work by Robert Glenn Ketchum and Amy Gulick in Southeast Alaska. The 25 attendees saw examples of historical conservation photography by Edward S. Curtis and his epic photographic endeavor of the North American Indian, and heard the case made for ethics in contemporary Conservation Photography. Ms. Rowlands called upon the audience to develop their own visual critique of the barrage of images that confronts each of of us daily.
