Images from the Wild: Surviving Man - David Chancellor
David Chancellor, one of the world’s most decorated photographers, has increasingly focused his attention on the complex relationship between man and wildlife, between the hunter and the hunted, and on the commodification of animals on the African plains. It’s a subject that burst into the news earlier this year, when a Minnesota dentist on an illegal hunt brought down a beloved lion in Zimbabwe.
In conjunction with the Pictures of the Year International exhibit Visions of Excellence on display at the Library through November 29, the South Africa-based Chancellor presents an illustrated talk about his work – which most recently earned POYi’s Environmental Vision Award.
Co-presented by Pictures of the Year International, administered by the University of Missouri School of Journalism, and the Kansas City chapter of the American Society of Media Photographers.
