What is it that motivates us to protect places of tremendous natural beauty, conditions that nurture strong, resilient communities, wild spaces that serve nothing more than biological diversity, or our collective right to a sustainable way of life so we might be able to leave a liveable world for future generations?
Join Chris Jordan, photographic artist and filmmaker, and Jenny Price, writer and artist, for our online event: From Art to Action: Finding Beauty and Protecting What You Love. We’ll explore why a reverence for natural beauty can be an important motivating factor in what we deem important—and as a result, how we choose to act.
Chris Jordan’s work explores the collective shadow of contemporary mass culture from a variety of photographic and conceptual perspectives. Edge-walking the lines between beauty and horror, abstraction and representation, the near and the far, the visible and the invisible, Jordan’s images confront the enormous power of humanity’s collective will. His works are exhibited and published worldwide.
