Ami Vitale: Rhinos, Rickshaws and Revolutions

Experience our world through the eyes of an award-winning photographer whose career has brought her face-to-face not just with violence and conflict, but also with surreal beauty and the enduring power of the human spirit. Ami Vitale’s work has taken her to more than 90 countries. She’s lived in mud huts and war zones, contracted malaria, and donned a panda suit—all in keeping with her philosophy of “living the story.”

Vitale’s career has taught her that stories about nature and wildlife are also stories about people—and that, at the same time, “you can’t talk about humanity without talking about nature.” She’ll share her personal odyssey, told through the images and adventures that have transformed her into a celebrated global photojournalist.
