Nikon Ambassador Ami Vitale
March 27, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
The White House News Photographers Association, with Nikon and National Geographic, present an evening with photographer Ami Vitale on March 27 at National Geographic’s Grosvenor Auditorium. Nikon Ambassador and National Geographic Magazine photographer, Vitale has traveled to more than 90 countries, bearing witness not only to violence and conflict, but also to surreal beauty and the enduring power of the human spirit. Throughout the years, Vitale has lived in mud huts and war zones, contracted malaria, and donned a panda suit— keeping true to her belief in the importance of “living the story.” In 2009, after shooting a powerful story on the transport and release of one the world’s last white rhinos, Vitale shifted her focus to today’s most compelling wildlife and environmental stories. Her photographs have been commissioned by nearly every international publication and exhibited around the world in museums and galleries. Recently, she joined Ripple Effect Images, an organization of renowned female scientists, writers, photographers and filmmakers working together to create powerful and persuasive stories that shed light on the hardships women in developing countries face and the programs that can help them. She is also on the Photojournalism Advisory Council for the Alexia Foundation.
