Purpose-Driven Photography: An Evening with Cristina Mittermeier

Following in the tradition of Lewis Hine, many photographers have learned to use the medium to affect societal and cultural change. With a clear purpose in mind, their photography becomes an incredibly powerful tool to make the public aware of important issues. That increased awareness is the first step toward influencing change.

Come and hear Cristina Mittermeier talk about her evolution from biologist to writer/photographer and how she is using her photography to raise awareness about issues closest to her heart. Passionate and engaging, she will inspire each member of the audience to identify the issue they care most about, and then do something about it!

This is an evening not to be missed.

About Cristina

Cristina Goettsch Mittermeier is a Mexican-born photographer and fisheries biologist who began her career as a writer and photographer in 1996. While co-editing a series of fine art books for CEMEX and Conservation International, Cristina discovered a gap in the photography industry and filled it in 2005 by founding the International League of Conservation Photographers (ILCP). ILCP unites a prestigious group of photographers around the common goal of visually communicating conservation issues.

Cristina dedicates her time to traveling the world to lecture and photograph subjects ranging from conservation science to indigenous cultures and she serves on the board of numerous conservation organizations. In 2009, Cristina was named a Sony Artisan of Imagery. She uses the Sony Alpha 900 system to photograph the fragile relationship between humans and nature.
