A climber and visual storyteller, Cory Richards was named National Geographic Adventurer of the Year in 2012. Through his work in some of the planet's most remote places, he has carved a niche as a leading editorial and expedition photographer. His camera has taken him from the controlled and complex studio to the wild and remote corners of Asia, Africa, Pakistan and the South Pacific—all in the attempt to capture not only the soul of adventure and exploration, but the beauty inherent in our modern society.
Richards’ photography has appeared in National Geographic magazine, Outside and The New York Times; and his film work has won awards at nearly every major adventure film festival including the grand prize at the Banff Mountain Film Festival.
In his lecture, Richards will explore the transformative power of imagery through his own journeys to the borderlands of society and human potential.
