American Photo, Assignment: Earth

Posted by lisagbrown on October 7, 2007

The cover story of this month’s American Photo is about the intersection of public policy, activism and art. More specifically, it’s about the role that photography plays in the conservation movement. Read the fantastic introductory article by going to American Photo. Then peruse the beautiful work of the photographers they highlight like Xi Zhinong, whose images of the extremely rare snub-nosed monkeys (above right) “precipitated a logging ban by the [Chinese] national government.”
