Terra Incognita: Exploring the Earth's Most Remote Places

Terra Incognita: Exploring the Earth's Most Remote Places

Christopher Michel

March 6, 02018

Christopher Michel has traveled literally to the ends of the Earth. From the North Pole to Antarctica and even 70,000 feet up into near space. He brings back evidence and observations from his travels. “Big Here” is the corollary to the Long Now, from Brian Eno's original essay, and Chris will truly expand our knowledge of this planet with his talk and photos from his journeys.

Christopher Michel is an accomplished photojournalist who has documented extreme locations like the North & South Poles, Mt. Everest, Papua New Guinea, DR Congo and the edge of space (aboard a U-2 Spy Plane). He's also had the opportunity to photograph several global leaders including the 14th Dalai Lama. His photographs have been used by National Geographic, the Smithsonian, the New York Times, the BBC, Outside Magazine, and others and appeared on the covers or front pages of a wide range of publications. He was formerly Photo Editor-at-Large for The Bold Italic and has published a number of fine art books.
