Conservation Alliance Speaker Series - Fracture Zone: Making Loss Visble

  • 25 May 2017
  • 12:00 PM - 1:15 PM
  • Desert Botanical Garden

Join us for this Community of Practice Speaker Series event to explore the power of photography for advocacy and conservation. Award-winning photographer and journalist, Osha Gray Davidson, will give us a peak into his ongoing project to document the lands and water above the largest copper deposit in North America (outside Superior, Arizona). Plans to mine the deposit would impact sacred Native American cultural sites, water, and habitat home to endangered and threatened species. In capturing the land before the mine, Osha allows us to see and appreciate the real costs of modern life.

Our speaker, Osha Gray Davidson, is an award-winning investigative writer and photographer. His work has appeared in National Geographic, Scientific American, Rolling Stone, Sierra and many other print and online venues. He is also the photographer for the CAZCA. His Arizona landscape images were selected for display at the Sandra Day O’Conner United States Courthouse and elsewhere. He lives in Phoenix.
