The United Nations headquarters in New York was recently lit up in a call for action to protect the world’s ecosystems and endangered species. The Oceanic Preservation Society – known for the Academy Award-winning documentary The Cove – also chose one of my photos for projection. My photo of Agashya, the mountain gorilla in the Rwandan jungle, was shown together with photos taken by Joel Sartore, Steve McCurry, Frans Lanting, and my idol Sebastião Salgado. I’m stoked! The video of the event can be found on Vimeo: illUmiNations – Protecting our Planet.
