Event description

Description

National Geographic photographer Jim Richardson will present his world travels in photographs of people and their efforts to feed the planet.


Please note: Our evening speaker series will be held at the Vail Public Library this summer because our exhibit Exposed: the Secret Life of Roots is so big there's no more room in the Betty Ford Alpine Gardens Education Center. Be sure to come check it out -there are roots hanging from the ceiling!


Refreshments and light snacks will be provided.

Cost is $10; $5 for MEMBERS

Jim Richardson is a photographer for National Geographic Magazine and a contributing editor for its sister publication, TRAVELER Magazine. Richardson has photographed more than fifty stories for National Geographic.

Richardson's work takes him around the world, from the tops of volcanic peaks to below the surface of the soil that provides our food, from the Arctic to the Antarctic and most places in between. ABC News Nightline produced a story about the long process of assembling a National Geographic coverage by following Richardson in the field and at National Geographic Society headquarters in Washington, D.C.

Richardson and his wife, Kathy, returned to Kansas in 1997, having lived 18 years in Denver. They now live in Lindsborg, Kansas, where they operate Small World: A Gallery of Arts and Ideas on the town's Main Street.
