One hundred of today's best photographers have come together to rally around a cause—saving the environment. Using their art, they are raising funds to support grassroots conservation organizations. Vital Impacts is a non-profit created by award-winning National Geographic photographer Ami Vitale and Eileen Mignoni. They have gathered some of the biggest names in photography and conservation heroes like Jane Goodall and have asked these artists to put their work up for sale, with 60% of the net profits going toward grassroots conservation campaigns.
Dr. Jane Goodall DBE, the world's foremost expert on chimpanzees, has also contributed prints that are available for the first time ever from her time working in Gombe National Park with her beloved chimpanzees.
Our other contributors are drawn from the covers of National Geographic and the world's most prestigious fine-art galleries. Just a few of the exceptional photographers are Paul Nicklen, James Balog, Nick Brandt, Chris Burkard, Jimmy Chin, Tamara Dean, David Doubilet, Beverly Joubert, Keith Ladzinski, Cristina Mittermeier, Jim Naughten, Maggie Steber, Joel Sartore, Tim Flach, Carolyn Guzy, Matthieu Paley, Xavi Bou, Beth Moon, Ami Vitale, Stephen Wilkes and Reuben Wu, who are among the hundred photographers taking part. The photographers in this initiative are diverse but the one thing they all have in common is a shared commitment to the environment.
The current print sale runs until December 31, 2021. There are both open and limited editions available in a variety of sizes. And with prints on sale at a range of prices, there is something for every budget. The prints are the perfect holiday gift that also gives back to charity and is a great way to get some new art for your home.
This is a moment to reimagine our relationship with nature and to each other. We all need to do all we can to care for the plants and critters that inhabit the earth. They are fellow travelers in this universe. Our future happiness depends on them.
Vital Impacts is a women-led 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
