Event description
Presentation by renowned photojournalist Ami Vitale with screening of the documentary “John Muir, Unruly Mystic”.

About this Event

Ami Vitale - National Geographic photographer, writer, filmmaker, Nikon Ambassador, and instructor - will explore our deeper relationship with nature and each other with her presentation, “Stories about our home, our future, and the interdependence of all life.” She will be joined by the documentary film, "John Muir, Unruly Mystic” which explore the life and legacy of the famed naturalist.

Ami Vitale is recognized as one of the world’s most humane and empathetic visual storytellers, traveling to more than 100 countries where she has witnessed civil unrest and violence, but also surreal beauty and the enduring power of the human spirit. She has recently hosted a ten part series, “Mission Covershot” for National Geographic Channel and “Over the Islands of Africa” for European TV. Her photographs have been commissioned by nearly every important international publication including National Geographic, Newsweek, Time, New Yorker, Geo, Le Figaro, Paris Match and Smithsonian. She is a founding member of Ripple Effect Images, a collective of scientists, writers, photographers, and filmmakers with a mission of creating powerful stories that illustrate how women in developing countries are affected by climate change.

John Muir played a major role in the early inspiration of the founding of the Swedenborgian Church, now a National Historic Landmark, but his teachings and philosophy on the importance of the preservation of nature are more relevant now than ever. This timely and fascinating presentation will kickoff our 125th Anniversary Celebration, from March 13 - 22 in which we explore the cultural, historical, and artistic significance we all play in the wider world. All are invited to attend!
