About This Talk

March 6, 02018
Photojournalist 
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. His collection includes photographs from extreme locations like the North & South Poles, Everest, Papua New Guinea, DR Congo and at the edge of space (aboard a U-2 Spy Plane). He's also had the opportunity to photograph a variety of global leaders, including the 14th Dalai Lama. His work is prolific and his photographs have been used by National Geographic, the Smithsonian, the New York Times, the BBC, Outside Magazine, and others. His photos have been seen millions of times and have appeared on the covers of many newspapers & magazines.

Chris has published a number of fine art books, and was formerly Photo Editor-at-Large for The Bold Italic. His most recent show was “Envisioning Ecstasy” at the Tibet House in New York City. His "Flying Emperor" photograph was the 2nd place finisher in the 02014 Wikipedia Picture of the Year.
