As part of the ongoing Artosphere events, the Walton Arts Center hosts photographer Annie Griffiths tonight at 7 p.m. in the Starr Theater for one-hour presentation followed by a Q&A and book signing.
One of the first women photographers to work for National Geographic, Griffiths has photographed in more than 100 countries during her career.
Aside from her work on dozens of magazine and book projects, she is deeply committed to photographing people and places in need around the world. With author Barbara Kingsolver, Griffiths helped produce Last Stand: America’s Virgin Lands, a book celebrating the last pristine wilderness in North America. Proceeds from the book have raised more than $250,000 for grassroots land conservation.
Griffiths has received awards from the National Press Photographers Association, the Associated Press, the National Organization of Women, the University of Minnesota and the White House News Photographers Association.
Tickets are $10 and are available at waltonartscenter.org.
