Nat Geo Live: Building the Photo Ark

Joel Sartore, photographer

The Broad Stage - Main Stage


National Geographic photographer Joel Sartore is on a mission to capture portraits of the world’s species before they disappear. With ingenuity, wit, and a serious Midwestern work ethic, Sartore has created the Photo Ark project, the largest archive of its kind with nearly 5,000 images and counting. Hear about his comical mishaps, endearing encounters and personal stories while documenting a world worth saving.

The September 8th presentation of Building the Photo Ark made possible in part by a generous gift from John and Kathy Kissick.
