Cape Town Programme 2017 - Saturday September 23rd
We are delighted that legendary National Geographic photojournalist, Brian Skerry, will be giving this year’s keynote! Specialising in marine wildlife and underwater environments, Brian’s uniquely creative images tell stories that not only celebrate the beauty of the sea, but also help bring attention to the large number of issues that endanger our oceans and their inhabitants. In 2010, National Geographic Magazine named one of Brian’s images among their 50 greatest photographs of all time.
We will soon be announcing the the rest of the programme and our speakers’ lineup.
