Anchorage Museum and National Geographic Live present photographer Annie Griffiths
February 17, 2015
Connect with Anyone, Anywhere on March 3 at the Discovery Theatre
One of the first women photographers to work for National Geographic, Annie Griffiths has photographed on six continents and in more than 100 countries. She has traveled by ultralight, moped, camel, hot air balloon, and elephant to reach some of the most remote places on earth. She comes to Anchorage March 3 via the National Geographic Live series for a lavish photographic on-stage journey starting at 7:30 p.m. at the Discovery Theatre.
Griffiths has witnessed fascinating situations and ceremonies around the globe. Known for her warmth, humor, and keen ability to connect with people, she is equally at home in a Bedouin tent or an African village. Griffiths has covered some of the world's most contentious places, including Syria, Pakistan, and Lebanon where her fearlessness and ability to open doors allowed her extraordinary entree.
National Geographic Live: Connect with Anybody, Anywhere with Annie Griffiths covers three decades of international travel filled with astonishing cultural observations and revealing stories. Tickets cost $39 and are on sale through CenterTix.net.
The National Geographic Live Anchorage Speaker Series is part of the Anchorage Museum's ongoing, quality programming that brings diverse authors, scholars, films and artists to Anchorage and Alaska and is presented in partnership with the Alaska Center for the Performing Arts. Annie Griffiths is the final event in the 2014-15 series. The speakers and dates for the 2015-16 speaker series will be announced this spring.
