Threshold Conversations: Ami Vitale
Award-winning photographer Ami Vitale has seen the best of humanity and the worst of humanity. She’s documented war and conflict, nature, wildlife, and conservation in places from Kashmir to China and Kenya.
On this episode of Threshold Conversations, we hear the incredible stories behind some of Ami’s most iconic images—including her photo of a northern white rhino that was on the cover of National Geographic; what she sees as the importance of storytelling; and why she’s hopeful for our future.
