Building the Photo Ark (National Geographic Live)

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 more than 9,000 images and counting. Hear about his comical mishaps, endearing encounters and personal stories while documenting a world worth saving.

National Geographic Live brings the top National Geographic photographers, scientists, filmmakers and adventurers to audiences around the world to share their unbelievable behind-the-scenes stories and stunning images and video.

This event is presented by the Seattle Symphony. The orchestra will not perform on this program.
