National Geographic Photographer Brings Her Snapshots To Arizona In Speaker Series
The images we see of protests around the world, or enlightening environmental scenes, or bonds between humans and endangered species are often brought to us by creative people — photojournalists — who travel into unfamiliar places to bring us these visual stories.
One such person is Ami Vitale, who has covered conflicts in Kosovo, contracted malaria and come as close to rhinos as possible.
She will be at the Mesa Arts Center Wednesday night as part of the National Geographic Live speaker series for a presentation called "Rhinos, Rickshaws and Revolutions."
The Show spoke with her and asked her, among other things, to talk about one image that saw her donning a panda suit in China.
