This autumn, one of the world’s leading nature and adventure photographers is giving UK audiences the opportunity to experience the beauty of our most remote landscapes in his ‘audience with…’ style theatre show, Wild Vision, presented by adventure-based speakers specialists, Speakers from the Edge.
“A truly professional show which takes audio-visual presentations into a new dimension.
Alistair MacDonald, BBC Producer
Widely acclaimed as one of the most exciting and stimulating nature, travel and adventure photographers to have emerged in recent years, John’s images have appeared on the front page of The Times and in The National Geographic as well as countless other outdoor publications and advertising campaigns. Travelling to 38 different countries, John’s trips have included seven months spent in Antarctica, a winter in Spitzbergen, a four hundred mile unsupported sled traverse of the Greenland Icecap, and two weeks marooned on a remote Atlantic rock to photograph an epic seabird harvest.
John describes his work as being primarily concerned with “the timeless rhythms of the natural environment, its beauty and simplicity, and man’s place within it
.” Sponsored by leading outdoor brand Rohan, Wild Vision is chance to experience John’s work. He hopes to inspire others to connect with their own environment, giving people a truly unique opportunity to see some of the most breath-taking images of our planet.
“It was brilliant. I have to say it was art…the whole audience responded with immediate and lasting applause…See it if you can.
UK-based, John is a captivating and inspiring storyteller. His amazing life has taken him from the peaks of all the Greater Ranges to the American Deserts, the teeming wildlife of East Africa and the wonder of the Galapagos Islands. Whether rafting down the Colorado River of the Grand Canyon, photographing footprints of yeti in the high snows of Himal, or celebrating round a campfire with primitive Kalahari Bushmen, John’s stories leave his audiences infused with energy and wonder at the beauty of our planet.
As a keen naturalist, John appreciates the beauty and fragility of our own countryside, and has photographed almost all the wild land locations in Britain, from the windswept tors of Cornwall to the white strands of the Outer Hebrides.
“A superb creative experience.
Sir Chris Bonington
