Photographer Cristina Mittermeier: Edge Of Two Worlds - Ocean & Humanity

May 19, 2024

1 Hour 30 Minutes

No Intermission

Victoria Theatre


With passion, conviction, and a zest for life, Cristina “Mitty” Mittermeier has dedicated her life’s work to safeguarding the ocean and inspiring millions to do the same. She offers insights she’s gleaned from documenting the far reaches of our planet aboard SeaLegacy 1, her home for six months each year. And, in light of the growing challenges facing our ocean—and world—she invites us to ask ourselves, “What is Enough?” Join Mitty as she shares how she has come to understand how “Enoughness” can be cultivated by finding fulfillment in what we have and in recognizing our connectedness to all things.

In 2005, Mitty founded the International League of Conservation Photographers to provide a platform for photographers working on environmental issues. In 2014, with her partner, photographer Paul Nicklen, she co-founded SeaLegacy, a nonprofit working to protect and rewild the ocean. A Sony Artisan of Imagery, and a collaborator in Rolex’s Perpetual Planet initiative, Mitty has been honored with many notable awards, including the Smithsonian Conservation Photographer of the Year Award. Her work has been published in hundreds of prominent magazines and media outlets. She is a sought-after speaker, and has been named by Real Leaders as one of the world’s best keynote speakers.
