Helzberg Hall 7:00p.m
Voyage across the oceans with one of National Geographic's most seasoned photographers and discover a vast, hidden world beneath the waves. Using his camera to communicate, Brian Skerry has spent more than 10,000 hours underwater telling the oceans' stories. His stunning images celebrate the mystery of the depths, and offer portraits of creatures so intimate they sometimes appear to have been shot in a studio. Skerry dives eight months of the year, often in extreme conditions beneath Arctic ice or in predator-infested waters, and has even lived at the bottom of the sea to get close to his subjects. The evening will include riveting stories of Skerry's encounters with whales, sharks , and giant squid and feature stunning, high definition images from his landmark new Nat Geo Book Ocean Soul. Skerry's unforgettable presentations inspire reverence for the world’s oceans and offer hope for protecting their vitality.
